On Anthology 2014-2016

Anthology 2014-2016 is a collection of thirty-four poems written by Tony Lewis between 2014 and 2016, and was produced on the occasion of an exhibition Anthology 2014-2016, a corresponding group of thirty-four collages at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. in the Spring of 2018. It also marks the conceptual completion of the collages that are themselves a collection of smaller text drawings culled from the pages of Calvin and Hobbes, a comic strip by Bill Watterson. Each collage was part of the writing process, and represents a tangible commitment to the words that make each poem. The publication is the liberation of original writing, and a personal commitment to understanding the relationship between drawing, collage, and writing.
