In honour of World Poetry Day which falls today, the Art Gallery of Ballarat has published a poem written by local poet and concert pianist Bronwyn Blaiklock in response to my painting, Vorticist II, 2004.
Bronwyn’s poem is a fine example of ekphrastic poetry. For those who are unfamiliar with the form, an ekphrastic poem is one that has been inspired by a work of art. For more about ekphrastic poetry, go HERE.
