Exploring visual intent
BY JOE PAYNE
Local poet and award-winning artist Lin Tarczynski will be signing her new book, “A Kick in the Eye,” at The Bookstore, 1137 North H St., Suite Q, Lompoc.
The book features Tarczynski’s Asemic writing—a post-lingual style of visual intent—alongside the work of 11 artists in a graphic novel format. Some Asemic work looks like writing, some looks like abstract art, or an old map. The style allows individuals to deride their own meanings from a piece.
Tarczynski, a longtime poet, has been experimenting with the Asemic style for the past two years, embracing the form as her main outlet for expression. Her style of wild, exuberant calligraphy will be on display at The Bookstore during her talk and book-signing event.
