The Poetry Series explores the interrelationship between written and visual language. The immersion of writing and mark-making, the fusion of both to create an overall visual expression, emotion, connection, and visual interpretation of the subject. For me, writing and abstract painting takes on a different dimension when explored in this way. Written language – letters, words evolve and are unified in the process of painting. My aim is to evoke the essence of the poem, or aspects of the poem, and not necessarily have the writing legible but rather the gesture of writing itself as mark-making within the process of painting.
