Lex-Icon Blog Project Post 24: Brandon Downing

 Isak Dinesen, #10, 2003 (Diptych), Mixed Media on Paper, 11" x 19 1/4"

This work is part of a series from my project Lake Antiquity: Poems 1996-2008 (Fence Books, 2010). The Isak Dinesen works (there are ~18 in the book) form a central part of the project, and concern a figure of indeterminate gender (much like the author who the works are named after, Karen Blixen AKA Isak Dinesen) moving through a collaged landscape made from fragments of Dinesen's own texts.” -- Brandon Downing
