This exhibition, 'Poesy Painting', is based on a conceptual link between literature (poetry), visual art and life. I have been looking to make paintings that are connected to poetry which do not follow the often cringe worthy pairing of the adjective, 'poetic', and painting. The works focus on areas such as visual and verbal puns, semantic content, rhythm and the real life ways both physical and visual that poetry can be considered a key discourse in painting.
My paintings are a visual representation of the poetry of epiphany, moments of creative inspiration and a merging of the poetic and artist myth making. In the work there is a visual/poetry element, linking the painting of a scene with the margins of the image where visual debate comes to life. I place quotes and sketches that help to guide the viewers own understanding of text, debate, historical moment and image.
I try to keep in my paintings frayed sections and perforated elements that go against the visual rules of the image. This is to reflect in paint and words the invisible concepts placed upon a place or a moment where creation has occurred.
