Nocturne: the birth of a series

In 2017 I started an online class with Lendon Noe called Meaning Making. It was looking at the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke and translating one or a fragment of a poem into works of art using collage, ink, image transfer and much more.

And I loved it!

I didn’t finish it “live” but it challenged me to find some of my own favourite poets and authors: Neruda? Rilke? But I wanted something more, something I could really hook in to.

Enter Peter Goldsworthy. His poem Nocturne hit all the right feels and so I began. A little bit of Lendon and a little bit of Goldsworthy and a whole lot of me.

I made a video explaining some of it.

In the coming months I’ll be fine tuning the process and the quality of work to give Goldsworthy’s poem and imagery the respect it deserves. I hope you’ll join me on that path either via Instagram, Facebook, follow this blog, or sign up to my newsletter.

And remember, my store will be open for the next couple of weeks. Every item is an original (no reproductions) and signed and matted, ready for framing.
