Maestro Arts presents George Nama’s ‘Poetic Images’ (16 Apr-24 Jun)

Maestro Arts presents George Nama’s ‘Poetic Images’ an exhibition at their Wandsworth gallery space from 16th April to 24th June. For more information, contact Maestro Arts.

American artist George Nama makes books and paints in books.  In this, his first exhibition in the UK, he has collaborated with poet and pianist Alfred Brendel and with the 13th American Poet Laureate, Charles Simić, to produce limited edition portfolios of poems with original artworks.  Each is a boxed, handmade collection of limited edition etchings on Arches Vellum paper, prints are signed by Nama, with each volume being signed by the author; typically thirty-two are produced.

In preparing for a portfolio, Nama produces a series of original artworks, responding to the poems through drawings and gouaches.  His works, like poetry, send thoughts in unexpected directions, connecting remote layers and associations.  The resulting artworks, reflect the diversity of these two great poets; Charles Simić and Alfred Brendel.
