Pictures created by a New Zealander to illustrate a poem written two decades ago are being exhibited in Brent. ..
Sonja van Kerkhoff originally produced a series of artworks in 1987 to compliment a poem called New Vessels, published in the same year by her husband Sen McGlinn.
He wrote the composition in response to T S Eliot's classic 1922 poem The Waste Land and it tells of a descent into darkness and resurgence into light.
Twenty years later, the Dutch-based artist has created a new set of images that once again explore the themes contained in McGlinn's prose.
Among the computer prints adapted from her 1988 drawings are images entitled She Stitched It Close, Watching and Sediment.
Her contemporary work, called Nga Paepae Hou - New Vessels, along with her partner's poem of the same name, is being exhibited at The Gallery at Willesden Green and will be on display until August 2.
*Visitors can view the drawings, prints and the original poem at the gallery based at Willesden Green Library Centre, High Road, Willesden, daily between 10am and 10pm, except on August 2 when the gallery closes at 6pm.
