Convergence – Fusion of Art and Poetry

Convergence – fusion of art and poetry

Click here to view our printable statement

Art speaks in bold colours and vivid textures. Each brush stroke makes a statement, illustrating and liberating all thoughts and feelings. Mindless doodles arise from the canvas, expressing emotions emerging from reflections within. Outpourings of images awaken wonder, silencing the mindless chatter as impressions surface and connect the art to meaning.

“When I paint my subconscious self is speaking what I can not express in words” – Angela Chao

Poetry speaks softly, heard through the dialogue of inspiring words weaving stories. Through the rhythm and rhyme of verse on the page, the dialogue of self is heard. Narratives conveying experiences of the human condition are composed and shared shattering isolation, connecting us. Writing is the oxygen fuelling self-expression, unleashing the power to transform.

“Through writing, I can exhale and express what I take in, in life.” – Susan Ksiezopolski

When poetry connects with art, it stretches and shifts self-expression to a new dimension. It creates a fresh artistic voice to communicate with to help translate the language of emotional literacy. The merging of poetry and art as a tool for creative expression is energizing and restorative.

Our belief is that by combining poetry with art to communicate and connect, we fuel engaging exchanges that expand awareness and alter perceptions of our world and ourselves.
