Vona Groarke - Spindrift (paperback)

Vona Groarke’s work finds itself in the difficult stand-off between the visual and the verbal. The senses and language are each the subject of painstaking examination, revealing an artist daring herself to find expression for often evanescent states. ... The outside being in and the inside being out is not only a recurrent theme, it is a way of presenting the intimacy of this voice, which hovers over phenomena, attempting to internalize them, testing the heart with distance and the ear with the no less difficult challenges of craft. Contemplating a robin, she remarks: If I knew how to fix in even one language the noise of his wing in flight I wouldn’t need another word. (‘An Teach Tui’

           W.N. Herbert, Poetry London
