Ray DiPalma - Genesis
Genesis is a collection of typewriter and Letraset visual poetry by legendary NYC artist Ray DiPalma.
Poet and visual artist Ray DiPalma was born in New Kensington, Pennsylvania. He is often associated with the Language school of poets. Silliman has written that DiPalma's poems “are not nearly so much objects as they are environments, lush worlds, sensual & crowded. You enter them & can wander endlessly – tho in fact his scale is mostly ... quite contained. It’s a world we should all visit often.”
DiPalma published over 30 books of poetry, translations, and graphic work with small presses. DiPalma lived in New York City and taught at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. His correspondence, manuscripts, and printed materials are held at Yale University's Beinecke Library.
