Swallowing Wayne Sleeth's sushi

Welcome to Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.

Wayne Sleeth's creativity bubbles over like a volatile jam pan, with his sweet ideas sticking to every nearby genre. Whether this is film, art or poetry Sleeth's tone is always lyrical and thought provoking. He was born in Cleethorpes and now lives in France where he paints beautiful abstracts based upon the surrounding landscape. I was lucky enough to exhibit with him recently at the Art Jazzed Up exhibition in November at the Shaw Gallery, Croydon where one of his artworks was shortlisted for the top award. Here is his poem that reads like a one of his alluring paintings.....

Too busy a summer
to notice
the swallows and swifts are gone
