Hello, it's been a bit quiet here. I haven't been working on books but other things over the hot summer.
I returned recently from a trip to Sydney where I'd been doing some specific research in the Mitchell Library in the State Library of NSW. The trip was very focused and I didn't have time to do anything else.
I was excited to discover a large exhibition showing in the Library while I was there called Born to Concrete: Visual Poetry from the Collections of Heide Museum of Modern Art and the University of Queensland.
There was a lot of work by well known people working in the field like Alex Selenitsch, Richard Tipping, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Sweeney Reed, Mike Parr and so on. But I was delighted to see the work of Queenslanders like Madonna Staunton, Nicholas Zurbrugg, Malcolm Enright, Vernon Ah Kee, Eugene Carchesio,Scott Redford, Luke Roberts and others.
