Gommie: Poems on Things

14 October - 6 November 2021
Overview

Daniel Raphael Gallery is delighted to present Poems on Things, a solo exhibition of new works by British-born poet artist, Gommie.

This body of work, including large scale maps, also debuts a collection of twenty smaller illustrated poems that present a more complex approach to documenting politics, environmental and societal issues, public opinion and emotion. 

 

Underpinned by travel, the artist explores these themes by walking across vast areas of the U.K and capturing them through a range of mediums. Whether it be on the map itself or his personal Moleskine diaries, the objective is the same - to remain faithful to the essence of the landscape and the residual feelings evoked by conversing with locals.
