The handmade limited edition book Cemented by Shadows is the first collaboration between visual artist Denise Brown and text artist Gail Robinson.
Denise’s vibrant drawings were inspired by memories of her upbringing in rural Cornwall. Consistent with her art practice she has used personal experience to translate the emotional content of everyday life and contemporary events in the world around her.
Gail’s poems were created in response to these images and her understanding of her fellow artist. These ekphrastic works draw guidance in part from Japanese poetic forms like Haiku. This is an intuitive response to the nature of Denise’s drawings and has allowed Gail to contrast image terrain with refined explorations of inner landscapes.
Seventeen-page hand made archival printed book with Japanese style binding in an edition of 10.
