Oriole Farb Feshbach’s
Images for H.D.’s Trilogy
The Walls Do Not Fall | Tribute to the Angels | The Flowering of the Rod
“Like H.D., Oriole Farb Feshbach’s artistic vision has its origins in a utopian community that focused on the power of the arts to create unity and peace.” Writes poet, Aliki Barnstone, in her introduction to Oriole Farb Feshbach’s new hybrid collection, Trifigurations. Oriole Farb Feshbach’s art in Trifigurations, brings out H.D.’s ideals of creativity that were heightened by myth’s abilities to transform. As with her previous collaborations, here we have the artist’s response to phrases and ideas within poetic texts, a communication between worlds, genres, and generations. Feshbach works with the mythologies used by H.D. in her wartime trilogy, to synthesize the poet’s own vast and personal myths, creating a new, visually rich experience in this stunning, full-color, 255 page, limited-edition art book.
