A series of poems found at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, 16/7/12

life is just beginning
and biomorphic forms
have sprung into existence!

abandon your dark tonalities
for a vibrant palette
of purples, pinks, glowing greens and yellows…

the artist
was out
driving

This little lane,
which still exists

a partly imagined nostalgic panorama

poetic suggestion

1

a grainy surface
placed behind the canvas
rubbed with a crayon

2

Ink
the ‘burr’
the metal
thrown up
the action
the drypoint needle drawn
across the plate
creating
areas
of intensity on
the sheet
