Sheila E. Murphy has been creating visual poetry, including asemic work, over the past 11 years. Her work has been included in multiple exhibitions internationally. Murphy’s textual poetry has been a major commitment in her life for more than three decades. Current work incorporates hand-drawn images that are subsequently treated electronically and presented in multi-layered formats. Recent book publications include visual poetry: permutoria (with K.S. Ernst) and The Case of the Lost Objective (Case), a solo book that features both visual and textual poetry. Murphy has lived most of her adult life in Phoenix, Arizona.
Sheila says: “These are the pictures that found the hand that found the light that found the punctuation that found a language past the language.”
