Poems by Fabian Peake
Jeremy Akerman & E ileen Daly (Eds.)
Using repetition and spatial gaps to convey emotion, atmosphere and a sense of time, painter and poet Fabian Peake’s shaped poems are surprising and disquieting. Peake draws on nature, memory and everyday life to create works that, although concrete in look, are distinct from the hard abstraction of concrete poetry of Hans Arp, Kurt Schwitters and Paul Klee. Loose Monk presents 41 works written over 20 years and neatly demonstrates the parallels between how he builds poems and constructs paintings. In the introduction, Peake discusses the relationship between art and writing, some of his underlying themes and the nature of poetic form and abstraction with editors Jeremy Akerman and Eileen Daly.
