This is a 'painting' made using collage techniques from the words of the famous 'Northamptonshire poet' John Clare. To make this artwork I printed the poem in a range of up to date and trendy colours and then cut, ripped, arranged and glued the words into these inspired designs. Each part of the design has been meticulously created using collage techniques reveal lines of poetry that can be read within the picture.
My inspiration comes from nature and wonderful lino cut print making that I admire. This painting shows the ruin of Lyveden New Bield an intriguing Elizabethan lodge and moated garden in Northamptonshire. The words of the poem add a bit more magic to my imagination and allow you to see into the world of the poet and me - the artist!
The Poem collaged into this painting:
A Spring Morning
John Clare 1793-1864
The Spring comes in with all her hues and smells,
In freshness breathing over hills and dells;
O’er woods where May her gorgeous drapery flings,
And meads washed fragrant by their laughing springs.
Fresh are new opened flowers, untouched and free
From the bold rifling of the amorous bee.
The happy time of singing birds is come,
And Love’s lone pilgrimage now finds a home;
Among the mossy oaks now coos the dove,
And the hoarse crow finds softer notes for love.
The foxes play around their dens, and bark
In joy’s excess, ’mid woodland shadows dark.
The flowers join lips below; the leaves above;
And every sound that meets the ear is Love.
