In her poem, “Lipchitz,” Gertrude Stein wrote: “When I know him I look at him for
/ him and I look at him for him and I look at / him for him when I know him. / I like you very much.”
Known as one of the twentieth century’s major artists, Jacques Lipchitz (1891-1973) was a cubist sculptor and is Paul Siegell’s all-out absolute favorite. Created entirely in the lo-fi of Microsoft Word, the following vispo spreads are from Siegell’s manuscript, JACQUES LIPCHITZ, which is a book-length visual love poem built upon typographical recreations of the artist’s sculptural biography, and where appropriate, some of his story as well. Kindly find more of his work – and concrete poetry t-shirts – at “ReVeLeR @ eYeLeVeL” (paulsiegell.blogspot.com).
