Campion on Poetry

A poem (or a painting) needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving in a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore; it’s to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out. It is an experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept mystery.

– from Jane Campion’s film about Fanny Brawne and poet John Keats

“I am naturally drawn to drawings with fine lines and abstract qualities, and I love collage. This has all of those elements, plus I enjoy the uneven edge and the cutout areas. The time travel aspects of the piece are incredible.”Daniel Cooney, DCFA
