GEORGE NAMA

Poetic Images
-

My images are unpredictable, appearing for a short time before they disappear or change. Sometimes I catch them briefly, but then I feel them slip away. It is only for that instance in passing, they are real and true.

George Nama

George Nama has collaborated with a number of major American and European poets, producing drawings, gouaches, etchings and sculptures in response to and illuminating their writings. Focusing on his limited edition portfolios, Poetic Images showcased his work with Alfred Brendel and Charles Simić.
