Tatiana at the Harbor & Derapture

Tatiana Suarez painted the above in response to my poem 2.19. Tati’s work shares compelling links with gurlesque poetry in how it plays with the hyperfeminization of its subject.

This will be on display at Malagueta, Tati’s July solo show at the National Harbor. Malagueta “is a fusion of culture, folkloric tales and legends colorfully rendered and set in voluptuous, airy atmospheres inspired primarily by the artists Brazilian heritage.” It’ll also include live models and a Latin Fusion Band. Hopefully I’ll see you there.

This is the second visual piece in response to a poem from the manuscript I’m currently working on. The first, is a gigantic print by Alyssa Pheobus.  These are great responses, so hopefully this is a sign that the poems aren’t bad.

Working title for the manuscript: “Derapture.”

Feel free to register your opinion.
