Flying high with Bright Redgrave

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

Today's poet is an alchemist, an experimenter and cerebral adventurer. Bright Redgrave is the nom de plume or alternative identity of the artist Victoria Redgrave. As a creator she is Interior Design's errant sibling, chewing up controlled spaces and spitting out conceptual sculpture and performance art. If you are lucky enough to be drawn into one of Redgrave's worlds then be prepared to have your beliefs and identity encouragingly challenged. Her ideals and ethos are in tune with us here at Jawspring with an interest in incorporating recycled and reused materials in her work. On a personal level I am drawn to her written work, particularly her 'A Road' anthology, that charts a journey through mental illness, physical pain, spiritual awareness and the inquisitive nature of the human condition. Here is her elevating poem for the JawSpring exhibition......

Souls Journey
One day
One way
Open mind
Open sky
