SCHOOL OF FISH – In 1997, the artist received a hand-written letter from the great poet, Eileen Myles, asking her if she would design a cover for her book School of Fish. The artist wasn’t familiar with Myles’ work 24 years ago, but she has come to know and love it. (Since then, Myles has also written about Rosen’s work in numerous publications.) The list has nothing to do with fish, but everything to do with fishy-sounding words, thus the eye reads one thing but the mind’s ear hears another.
