Event details

This paper discusses the artistic dialogue between works by artist Ben Nicholson and poet W.S. Graham, in which abstract formalism creates a release into a new self-consciousness or imaginative world. Such a kinship at a deep formal level implies a relational equivalence between visual and verbal mediums which exceeds the merely figurative, analogical or ekphrastic. This will lead to a presentation of selected works from Try To Be Better (Prototype, 2019), a creative-critical engagement with Graham’s compositional practice.
