PRINT AND PAINT IS A WORK OF ART.

A POET and a painter have joined forces to bring a collaboration of works to Edge Hill University's Arts Centre.

Showing from April 11 to 26, Manifest: Poetry Beyond Text features collections from Robert Sheppard and Pete Clarke as they bring to life paintings, printmaking and poetic text.

The works cover themes of manifestos, of historical references and political activism in their layout.

Sheppard, Professor of Poetry and Poetics at Edge Hill University and Clarke, MA Course Leader and Principal Lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Central Lancashire, have been making work together over the last three years.

Initially Clarke was inspired to make paintings by Sheppard's poems from his book Twentieth Century Blues. They were then commissioned for a project Poetry Beyond Text: Vision, Text and Cognition, a multi-disciplinary research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
