The Water's Edge: Meetings of Image and Word (Paperback)Ardyn Halter (author)
Paperback 104 Pages / Published: 28/09/2006

Fusing images and poems that share water as a common theme, The Water's Edge explores complexities of expression through a series of screenprints by artist Ardyn Halter. They are complemented by a range of poems, linked to the prints through the notion of water, a primary element in the emotional consciousness of the creative being. Including the work of an impressive array of contemporary poets - Seamus Heaney, Geoffrey Hill, Paul Muldoon and Don Paterson, Michael Longley, Jamie McKendrick, Stephen Romer, Gabriel Levin, Jennie Feldman and Robin Robertson - The Water's Edge also reproduces original hand-written drafts of selected poems, and correspondence between artist and writer as well as the elements that went into the making of individual prints: elements tried, used, altered or discarded. The result is not only a beautiful homage to a life-sustaining element but a fascinating insight into the creative mind at work.
