These Lines of Poetry Are...
“These Lines of Poetry are…” contains nine etchings and text from the book of poetry, “Road to Deadman’s Cove” by George Palmer. The sheets are enclosed in a clam shell box. Open, the pages are 13” X 11.5. This book celebrates a sense of place, the beautiful, small island of Monhegan off the coast of Maine. Its rough beauty has attracted generations of artists and writers. Both George Palmer, the poet, and I found seclusion there, surrounded by beauty. The design of the pages is subtle and fosters opening and closing, discovery and continuation. The selections of text and imagery highlight small discoveries from Mohegan’s shores that usually are spotted by children. This shared experience of artist and poet separated by twenty-five years evokes a reverence for nature and the magic of isolation.
