The challenges of translating from one language to another are well discussed and lamented. These challenges increase when poetry is involved: not only must the meaning emerge, but the product must SOUND like something that could count as a poem.

Featured Artist

Yvonne Jacquette has been described as an artist "enamored with the aerial view." She is known for her paintings, prints, and pastel drawings that begin with direct studies made from jet planes and city high-rises. She depicts urban and rural environments from an unfamiliar vantage point, scrutinizing a broad range of American topographies from coast to coast. In her nocturnal views, the perspective she uses transforms the images of neon signs, strings of cars on dark highways, and lit windows into patterns of luminosity.

Jacquette studied at the Rhode Island School of Design. She has taught at many universities and is represented in collections at places such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Staatlich Museum in Berlin. In 1990 she received the Painters Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She has exhibited regularly at the Brooke Alexander Gallery in New York.
