Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird – Adapted for Abstraction by Phillip Ho

Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird - Adapted for Abstraction by Phillip Ho

The poem Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird by the great Wallace Stevens features thirteen stanzas that use vivid imagery to show us all of the various ways a person can look at a blackbird.

What you will see in this Illustrator project is my interpretations of each of the thirteen stanzas of the poem including two blank spaces of contrasting black and white to interpret the laws of the Gestalt Theory and Symmetry.
