The Death Mask of Friedrich HölderlinBill Wolak

Mad Swirl is proud to introduce to you our latest visual artist, Bill Wolak. If his name is ringin’ a bell it might be because his words have appeared in our Poetry Forum since 2011. This time Bill comes to us sharing some of his poetically mad visuals. Most of these canvases are exclusively black, white, and grey – somewhat gothic – and nearly always symmetrical collages. Each piece has an almost mystic and medieval air, though the selection strides through subjects (for example: legs, a penis, is that a butterfly wing?). We here at Mad Swirl pride ourselves on knowing mad work when we see it. And in this case, Wolak certainly didn’t let us down! If you don’t believe us, let your senses check Bill’s works out for yourself and you’ll see exactly what we mean. ~ Madelyn Olson
