A Melody of Sorts

Monday 25 February, 10:00 - Sunday 31 March, 22:00
Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Level 4 Gallery
This event took place in 2019

Lindsay Turk’s paintings engage with the poetry of Jon Plunkett

A Melody of Sorts explores themes of movement, not only physical but also emotional, psychological and philosophical. These themes emerge time and time again in the collaborative works of artist Lindsay Turk and poet Jon Plunkett.

The marriage of the two artists allows their works to emerge and interweave in a way that is quite unique. At times in this collaborative process it is the poem that sparks the painting, while at other times the painting is the spark for the poem. Always the two inform and shape one another along the way until the final pairing of painting and poem is arrived at.

The poems in this exhibition feature in the collection A Melody of Sorts by Jon Plunkett (Red Squirrel Press, 2019).
