On the Blue Shore of Silence Poems of the Sea
Santa Barbara, California:: Simplemente Maria Press,, 2001.. Edition of 50. Twelve poems in Spanish with English translations by Alastair Reid. Twelve giclée prints from original watercolors by Mary Heebner. Twelve hand folded folios of Fabriano Tiepolo each contain a different image from the series. Poems are letterpress printed in Adobe Jenson and Trajan from photopolymer plates on handmade linen paper and tipped-on alongside the images. Folios presented in a linen wrapper painted by the artist with indigo pulp at Dieu Donné Papermill and housed in a cloth-covered, clamshell box. Edition of 50. (11 x 14 x 2 inches.) Special Edition of 22 contains a signed, original watercolor from the Isla Negra series, mounted in a self-standing mat. The rugged Pacific coastline of Chile and the poet's verse inspired Heebner's Isla Negra series of collage paintings. "Neruda was a curator of memory," writes the artist. "He gathered up objects as if to store his thoughts among them." Thus are Heebner's paintings repositories of memory. Forms that she sketched in the poet's Isla Negra living room began to surface in her studio as she saturated thick, fibrous Japanese paper with bluish-grey pigment. She added earthy Sienna tones to draw figures forth from the depth. Oceanic colors and textures thus draw us into deep places, the places Neruda's language also leads. "Let us look for secret things / somewhere in the world . . ./ coins of time and water, / debris, celestial ash / and the irreplaceable rapture / of sharing in the labor / of solitude and sand."
