Vanessa Maltese



Entering this chapbook by passage through red, white, and blue, we see right-side pages holding four rectangular frames, arranged 2×2, sometimes involving colour, but mostly in black and white.  Charged from the inside with lines and corners, one frame breaks free of its place in conformity, unleashing its energy across the left-side page.  Vanessa Maltese’s work studies the frame’s capacity to contain its internal dynamism.  “How to hold fire?” – it seems to ask.
