Ekphrasis: Art describing other art.
Created by the Greeks, the goal of this literary form is to create a word-painting, so the reader can envision the item described as if it were physically present.
Write whatever the image conjures up.
You can see ekphrasis art at the Artists’ Co-op of Mendocino, a collaboration between writers and visual artists where writing is paired with visual arts. Writing was nspired by art as well as art that inspired writing: 2021 Ekphrasis X Exhibition.
