Gommie U.K., b. 1985

Overview

"I see all my work as simply marking time. Be it with words or colour. That can be a political calamity, any person I meet saying something funny or moving, or me simply being lost (which is often). I try not to think about the broader meanings too much. I just try to be present with every map. If it moves me - it goes on the map."

Gommie is an English poet artist whose work is focused on using the poem as a vehicle for weaving together individual and national notions. His artistic career began after spending time roaming around the British countryside painting on old ordnance survey maps. His unique poems are typically created from acrylic paint, ink, mud, doodles and written text.
