Digital collages & poetry by CR Smith
Slant Stones in Graveyards
I recall soft orange earth
where tall green weeds
in the full south wind,
and pale ghosts fed
slant stones in graveyards
quiet conversations of the dead
beneath shattered moonlight.
Moon Eye Digital Collage started life as a paper cut collage, which was then photographed in order to manipulate it digitally. A pastel effect has been used to soften the image, the aim being to make it visually ambiguous. Is it the moon breaking through clouds or a watchful eye?
CR Smith is a student of Fine Art at the University of Kent, UK. She creates artwork from inconsequential items that have been abandoned or discarded — those items most people would assume are rubbish. Working with mixed media, she is led by whatever she finds, sometimes using it directly in her collages, sometimes using it as inspiration for sculptures. Her stories and poetry have been published both online and in print while her artwork has appeared in Calamus Journal and Hypnopomp Magazine, with upcoming pieces scheduled for Flash Frontier and Green Light Literary Journal. You can find examples of her work here and here. Twitter @carolrosalind
