In choosing to write a series of poems upon works of art, mainly upon paintings, Tricia Veale is in fine company.
Just as visual art, for thousand of years, has shared common ground with literature, literature so very often includes painting, sculpture, decoration and creativity within its fields of reference. Within aesthetics, these are indeed sister arts.
Behind the multiple voices of these poems we discern a writer with interests in painting, sciences and literature, together with a sharp (and sometimes droll) sense of humour, we are aware, too, that the section's variety and details exceed the identikit.
