Portfolios, poetry, prints and gouaches with poet and pianist Alfred Brendel and Charles Simić, the 13th American poet laureate.

About

American artist George Nama makes books and paints in books.  In this, his first exhibition in the UK, he has collaborated with poet and pianist Alfred Brendel and with the 13th American Poet Laureate, Charles Simić, to produce limited edition portfolios of poems with original artworks.  Each is a boxed, handmade collection of limited edition prints on Arches Vellum paper, prints are signed by Nama, with each edition being signed by the author; typically thirty-two are produced.  To open a handmade, sumptuously boxed portfolio, is to unleash the imagination of two artists, visual artist, American George Nama and poet.

In preparing for a portfolio, Nama produces a series of original artworks, responding to the poems through drawings and gouaches.  His works, like poetry, send thoughts in unexpected directions, connecting remote layers and associations.  The resulting artworks, reflect the diversity of these two great poets; Charles Simić and Alfred Brendel.
