Marilyn Peck: Poetry In Motion

May 29 - June 12

An exhibiting artist since 1970, 89 year old Marilyn Peck imparts that the exhibition’s miniature artworks are essentially, ‘poetry in motion’. “My second love, after painting, is the writing of poetry, I approach both the same way. A word or two will set me off and a poem arises with its own rhythm. Similarly, I love the accidental happenings on the picture plane when I drop colour onto wet, hot-pressed Arches paper. These are gifts that ferment the imaginative process.”

Marilyn explains that her paintings embody an essence akin to Japanese haiku poetry which expresses moments of heightened awareness, usually in just three lines. Consequently, these poems are allusive and require the reader to contemplate the meaning and significance. Much like a haiku poem, Marilyn’s miniatures are not preconceived illustrations of a story but rather, aim to trigger unexpected insights for the viewer.

Official opening: Saturday May 29, 4-6pm at 29 Tedder Avenue Main Beach, Qld.
