There is a woeful dearth of online information for artist Marie Wilson but for this one website, plus an earlier post on this blog. The poet Richard Tagett provided the images below, which were first published in his magazine, Manroot.
I do know that Marie Wilson is still alive and living with her husband Nanos Valaoritis in Greece. She must be about 89 years old.
A recent publication from City Lights Books (Will Alexander's "Compression & Purity") features a detail from her drawing, " The Creator."
The following series is entitled "Psychograms." Click on each image for a larger view.
