HARD TO READ – Collected Paint Poems, Poet Portraits & Pansemia of SJ FOWLER

Rich Mix Gallery 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6LA (downstairs from the Indigo Cafe) December 9th 2017 to january 14th 2018 with a special view performance event on January 13th 2018

.Collecting together the art poetry of SJ Fowler, this solo exhibition aims to pose several questions of the poem as a concrete, visual thing in the world. What is in the shape of a letter and what images do words recall? What is the meaning of colour in poetry and text upon the page, and white space? How does the situation of a poem change its meaning? Why is composition not a concept that applies to a medium that is innately visual? In literature, why has content overwhelmed context? Why has product dominated process? HARD TO READ poses these questions and answers them poorly, playfully, with over 40 original works drawn from multiple publications and previous exhibitions – works that interrogate handwriting, abstraction, illustration, asemic and pansemic writing, scribbling, crossings out, forgotten notes, strange scrawls – the odd interaction between paper and pen, and pencil, and coloured words that randomly collide with image recalling words.
