PRAISE

Bindle is collaboration not only between artists, but between worlds. In this extraordinary collection, physical object meets metaphysical speculation, kind and unkind language inhabit silent space, minimalist means gesture toward major meaning, and life is haunted by mortality—with exquisitely scrupulous and pure attention. The beauty here is distilled from rich human experience and, yes, wisdom.

Alicia Ostriker

In Bindle, Dianne Kornberg draws on her vast repertoire of images to craft a compelling visual counterpoint to Elisabeth Frost’s poems. Kornberg’s response provides much more than simple melodies and rhythms to Frost’s lyrics. She creates instead a richly orchestrated choreography of images, floating Frost’s words and phrases along the parallel and sometimes divergentcurrents of her own imagination.
