                    ISSUE #5

                    Editors note:

                    This one was a rough ride. I don't want to get into the details but this time i had to deal with so many submissions that were inadequate to the magazine's concept I thought somebody was joking on me. That was downright discouraging. That's why this time I relied more on curated content than incoming submissions. It made a better issue.

                    I'm glad to present you the works of the following:

                    Angela Caporaso is an Italian artist focusing on visual poetry and artists books, working with the mediums of collage, trash-art and, more recently, digital formats . Angela Caporaso's art has always been characterized by a constant research and experimentation.
                    Since her first exhibitions, which date back to the eighties, she has revealed a constant strain towards new expressive languages.
                    This constant research led Angela to contaminate sign with colour, font with image, literature with painting, as though one single medium was not sufficient to express her complex imaginative world.
                     Angela Caporaso has worked on the words of the main contemporary writers.

                    ISSUE 4

                    ISSUE #4

                    Editors note:

                    Still can't believe this magazine lasted more than three issues. I guess i'm becoming a more organized person because of this. Anyway...

                    Original plan for the #4 was to make a prose-centered issue. There was a fair share of nice pieces that were individually fine - but in whole it wasn't working at all. It was a mess. So I decided to start from scratch instead trying to fix fundamentally broken concept.

                    And it was moderately successful. It took longer than usual to make it work. The flow wasn't as good as Issue 3. There were a lot of trash submissions and too many pieces that were critically unfit for the magazine that promotes experimental writing. But after all - it's a solid issue with lots and lots of great stuff to read and think about.

                    I'm glad to present you the works of the following:

                    Bill DiMichele - Garage

                    Little is known of the life of Bill DiMichele, the apocryphal painter/poet/musician of the early 21st century.  He studied quantum physics with Feynman and religion with Zoroaster and Akiva.  Legends tell of him learning sand painting from the Native American shamans on the high banks of the Monongahela River.  On snow-covered mountains he contemplated the emerald tablet of Hermes, discovering the significance of the saying “as above so below”.  This is the principle that guided his work from 1975 to 2025. 

                    This series of paintings, which has been in progress since 1993, and now counts +/- 150 works, is called ‘Garage’.  Their intent is to open the mind, and, more importantly, the soul and the spirit.  The paintings are like higher dimensional landscapes, portraits, and languages.  It’s all there for the taking.

                    Bill DiMichele aka Billy Dim aka Doctor Homeslice.

                    Howie Good - Five cut-up texts
