Femmage to Creeley

etc etc
 

Femmage to Creeley. There are several “Homages to Creeley,” most famously by poet Jack Spicer. This handworked response, which depicts in metallic and cotton thread the phrase “etc etc” that frequently appeared in his correspondence, was made for Kaplan Harris, one of the editors of Creeley’s Selected Letters. Another femmage to Creeley, by Carla Harryman, appears in Grand Piano 1.
