Join Katherine Vaz, Isabel Pavão, and Katherine McNamara for a discussion of their multimedia e-book, The Heart Is a Drowning Object, from Artist’s Proof Editions; with Molly Schwartzburg.
The Heart Is A Drowning Object is a collaboration in poems and paintings by the novelist Katherine Vaz and the artist Isabel Pavão. These artists have found inspiration in a female solitude that living through grief might bring. Katherine Vaz’s melodic poems begin with an actual damaged heart in a love story—a husband with a sudden affliction, a wife who tends to him. Isabel Pavão’s vibrant pictures share and explore her colorations of grief. Their words and images grow together, in an unexpected bloom of joy, into a way of recognizing late love amid the real possibility of loss.
