Sun Stigmata gets in your eye…

Poet and conceptual artist Eileen Tabios’ new book, Sun Stigmata: Sculpture Poems, is now available through Marsh Hawk Press. And do read her long poem, “I forgot the Binary of Refugees Vs. Art” here in the Fall 2014 issue of Local Nomad. Yes, we like “disturbing.”

Eileen Tabios is a genre-exploding, subversive, transgressive, superbly intelligent writer who I think thrives on the idea of hybridity. …she can be intent on blurring the lines between art and the everyday, not unlike, for me, the emblematic metaphor in William Burroughs’ novel Naked Lunch
.—Burt Kimmelman, Poet’s House Introduction, 2007
