Expressionist Scribble

Yesterday, I tried my hand at asemic writing.  According to Wikipedia, “It is a wordless open semantic form of writing…”

“It may flow as an abstract expressionist scribble which resembles writing but avoids words.”

”The key to asemic writing is that even though it is traditionally “unreadable” it still maintains a strong attractive appeal to the reader’s eye.”

”It seeks to make the reader hover between reading and looking.  All of this is similar to the way one would deduce meaning from an abstract work of art.”

I didn’t actually write words with meaning until this last one:

  7. Hi Jill,
    I never heard of asemic writing either! I particularly like your page with the bronze paint and the strong vertical ink lines as well as the one with the scribbly lines made with the writer pen!
    You are so full of creative energy and I think it shows in the beautiful new picture of yourself which I discovered just now! I imagine you creating all day! I loved the winter scene very much which you made the other day and liked the book you shared, looks like an interesting one! I think I must put it on my wishlist!
    Happy Valentine’s day to you too!

    • Thank you Suzanne for your nice comments! 😘💕 I hope you give asemic writing a try! The book I recommended also has some examples of the asemic writing. I thought it would be fun to add to my collages. 😊 I do try to create a little art each day as it brings me joy! 🎨💕 Wishing you a happy heart day too! 😍
