Marilyn Stablein’s Found-Object Assemblages

Marilyn Stablein is an artist and writer who creates assemblages from re-purposed and found objects. In her words, the objects’ origins are “unknown, unchartable. They evoke and personify mystery. Shape, form, condition, past function and new arrangements reveal, conceal, and evoke.”

Stablein is the author of many books, including: Splitting Hard Ground: Poems (New Mexico Book Award); Bind, Alter, Fold: Artists Books; Sleeping in Caves: A Sixties Himalayan Memoir; and a collection of eco-essays, Climate and Extremes: Landscape and Imagination. In 2018 a book of stories VERMIN: A Traveler’s Bestiary was published by Spuyten Duyvil, NY; a memoir Houseboat on the Ganges and collection Milepost 27: Poems (Black Heron Press) are both forthcoming in 2019.
