Good Poetry

I find good poetry                                                              GOOD POETRY
The Xu Bing exhibition                                               

Good characters
Never make plagiarism
In Chinese art

Of a master stroke
Imprints the soul

Can a westerner
Find lines of poetry
In the branches of a tree

Matrika Shakti
The word made flesh
Becomes a poem on the page

Art goes global
Text blends into landscape
Culture transcends image-in-nation

  1. "Good Poetry" is written on a white fridge magnet and sold for £3 outside the Xu Bing exhibition in the Ashmolean which is one till May 2013. This poem-picture work explores the conceptual art of poetry and picture making, East and West.
