It was a great day out in Margate visiting Turner Contemporary. Their currently exhibition is the Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’. It is a collection of artwork that has been chosen by a Research Group that reflects on the poem by T.S Eliot.

The Waste Land, 2007
I really enjoyed these collages of looking at the words in ‘The Waste Land’ It really did consume my attention to look at the frequency of the words. The way it had been collaged together and how clean and aesthetically the text was working together in groups and columns.
Right: Cy Twombly canvases
I thought Cy Twombly paintings were interesting with the large scale and daubs of paint. Finding out more detail around these paintings they reflect on the different seasons and this is highlighted with the different colours used. It also reflected in the poem, which is very descriptive of the locations.
