TURNING CHAOS INTO HARMONY
So what is “Ransom Notes from the Heart?” Generally, we think of ransom notes as figuring out what to write and then cutting out letters to give it that “ransom note” look. But this is “free-association” poetry—cutting out random sentences, phrases, or single words from various magazines, spreading them out over a large table, and then letting the mind go to work, connecting a phrase here, a word there, until something fun, interesting, even poetic, is created! I like to call it an embrace of chaos and rationality, or simply, turning chaos into harmony. Combined with my art work, which is hand-made from construction paper and artist materials (nothing is photo-shopped!), the overall aesthetic of the art work is consistent with the organic feel of the free-association poetry.
The sentiment gives a poetic heartfelt touch for that specific someone, with a little piece of art to go along with it.
