I am delighted that this collaboration with the artist Paul Wuensche has come to fruition. The exhibition features poems that were inspired by the sights and sounds in my garden and observations made on my walks along the Thames towpath.

At the launch evening I gave a short reading of some of my poems on this theme. The exhibition space allows for only a few poems to be displayed, to complement the paintings.

Since last year Paul has been observing and painting the ordinary streets of Barnes from his car (converted into a mobile art studio), resulting in a collection of bijoux paintings, that celebrate the trees, the houses, the cars, and even the phone boxes of Barnes throughout the seasons.

We’ve produced a little pamphlet as a memento of the project. It also served as the exhibition programme at events. It was so popular that copies of the booklet are stocked in the Barnes Bookshop.
