Here’s a glimpse of one of my favourite commissions – a new poem to accompany visual artists Aideen Barry and Alice Maher through their recent exhibition in Washington. Below, you’ll see the opening couplets of my poem ‘Split/End’ as it appears in this beautiful catalogue. The poem is woven throughout all the following pages, but here’s a little taste of the opening couplets. What a joy it was to work with such amazing artists – I still can’t believe my luck.
