Ways of Seeing

‘Seeing comes before words’ – John Berger

Responding and interpreting abstract art is comparable to the way we read and respond to poetry.  The two art forms are very similar in that, both play with ideas and concepts which can be interpreted in a number of ways.  The meanings are sometimes not as liner, not as explicit.  The reader of both poetry and abstract art brings in their own interpretation and narrative. It is at this point that something exciting happens. My creative writing ‘taster’ workshop at Orleans Stables Gallery in Twickenham, began exploring the  relationship between abstract art and poetry.
