reading and rhyming


Buzz Spector
, All the Books in my Library. By or About Dieter Roth, 1999


Giuseppe Arcimboldo
, The Librarian, 1566


Pablo Picasso, Guitar and Ceret, 1913


Picasso, The Guitar Player Cadaques, 1910


Kurt Schwitters, Merzbau, 1933


Casper David Friedrich,
Sea of Ice, 1824

Visual "rhymes"—some of them are a bit subtle, but keep staring. Subject matter counts too; think human figure (head and upper torso) as monolith.

Thanks Kirstin. Some of Spector's book photos are more figure-like, but oh well.
