I met Ian as an artist-in-residence at the Millay Colony. Our collaboration, “The Corpses” (from the Surrealist game Exquisite Corpse), began with a coffee-stained poem Ian mailed to me; I added something and sent it back. It’s a visceral process: the anti-Photoshop. Called “joyously Fluxus-like” by Robert Shuster in the Village Voice, the series has been evolving for a decade.
Laura Bell’s paintings and collages have been exhibited in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Berlin, and elsewhere. She lives, paints, and makes Corpses in Long Island City, New York
