The book which accompanies this exhibition of Rebecca’s recent work includes poems by Anthony Anaxagorou.
‘I heard the actor Damian Lewis read Anthony’s poem – Himself – on BBC TV’s Newsnight. In barely five lines, Anthony draws a spare yet elegant comment on his world. I had never thought of attempting to introduce poetry to painting … but a studio visit and long conversation led to the inclusion of eight of his poems. They are not ‘about’ the work. They are, some of them, his reflections; a genuinely chance encounter.’ Rebecca Salter
