Hands & Feet of Friends & Family by Helen Korpak
Photocollages by Helen Korpak
Beginning to look
I started to notice
the older I get
the more I notice
studying the reproductions
separating this from that
noticing the gestures
feeling the movements
of the joints—
Hands & Feet of Friends & Family is a weave of Helen Korpak’s photocollages and locket-sized literary captions recording closely observed familiar and familial gestures. Granular renderings tenderly taped, Korpak’s collages meld the touching and the wryly humorous, balancing throughout the vulnerability of artist and subjects bonded by essential fondness.
