She wrote mark in response to my work as well as to the challenge of Qarrstsiluni’s current theme of ekphrasis, “poetry in dialogue with visual art”. It’s been accepted and is now posted at Qarrstsiluni, so do please go read it and congratulate Tall Girl on her thoughtful and moving poem. Many warm thanks, Tall Girl, and all the wonderful editors of this fabulous literary and visual art e-zine!

Nexus: Vyg & Willendorf
inkjet print on Hahnemuhle watercolour paper

The three skiers are images of Finno-Ugric rock carvings from the Vyg River, near the White Sea in the Karelia region of northwestern Russia, based on a photograph by Loit Joekalda of Tallinn, Estonia and used with his permission.
The female figures are my drawings of the Paleolithic Venus de Willendorf figure found in Austria, a recurring image in many of my works.
