Visual poetry has been my passion since 1984.
"Threads" summarizes, in color, my obsession
with language. In the same way that our bodies
contain within them the remnants of our
ancestors, so do our languages.
The weaving of signs of the past and present
celebrate the ancient peoples, writings,
and symbols that are still a part of us.
These are the archetypal images that continue
to speak to us from ancestral memories that
we will, in turn, pass on to future generations.
Carol Stetser founded Padma Press in 1976.
After publishing 3 offset photography books,
she became active in the mail art network for
the next 14 years.
In 1980 she began making xerographic collages,
a medium she continues to use for her visual
poetry which has been widely published
