        Tango de la CicatrizEpigrama de Fin de SigloPoema de Juvenal AcostaMonoimpresiones de Gustavo Ramos RiveraIntroducción de Alberto Blanco

      San Francisco, California:: Ediciones Tarumba,, 1996.. Edition of 22. 18 x 23 x 1.5"; 9 leaves. Five monoprints: collaged and handworked by the artist; printed with colored etching inks on plexiglass then pressed with a dry point plate of aluminum. Images printed on white Twin Rocker feather deckle heavyweight handmade printing paper, made by Twin Rocker Mill (Brookston, Indiana). Text letterpress printed on Rives BFK paper in Monotype Poliphilus and Blado by Peter Rutledge Koch, assisted by Richard Seibert. Laid in a lined portfolio box, hand painted by the artist. Paper size is 16 x 21". All plates have been effaced and cancellation proofs have been pulled. Edition of 22: 11 in English; 11 in Spanish (plus one publisher's proof, one printer's proof, one poet's proof, and one artist's proof). This is a copy in Spanish. Alberto Blanco, introduction: "... in this portfolio, poetry and painting come together, like sea and sand, and the result is neither the one nor the other, but the mystery that begins there, where opposite poles touch; there, where the borders of the scar meet and kiss; ... " ... if it weren't so evident that the poem by Juvenal Acosta and the monoprints by Ramos Rivera are an end-of-the-century cry - a renewed howl from the millennium's end - we would think that this was only an innocent work of art."But, is there such a thing as an innocent work of art? No, because a work of art is a wicked proposal that is at once both an arrival and a departure, and Tango of the Scar is no exception: it is indeed a poem that moves in different directions. It is a poem for the end of the century, for the end of the millennium; but also a poem for the beginning of the millennium, the beginning of the century.""In this portfolio where the poems came first and the images, the monoprints of Gustavo Ramos Rivera are that and more. These monoprints are a palimpsest of apparitions on handmade paper: a line traced with pencil, quilled pen, or with the stroll of a paintbrush; the collage follows with its textures as pieces of paper are attached, including, of course, the printed original poem; then the watercolors and etching inks on plates of plexiglass; and finally the pressing of the paper against a dry point plate of aluminum that transforms the monoprint into a coherent entity larger than the sum of its parts.
