Artist Michael Schlitz and poet Karen Knight launch Balancing – an artist book of woodcut prints and poems.

Michael and Karen first collaborated in 2013 when Bett Gallery teamed them up for the Poets & Painters exhibition. Their collaboration was so successful that it led to a close friendship and the long-term working project Balancing – a finely tuned balancing act between printmaker and poet.

Balancing demonstrates the rich variety and depth of creative stimulation engendered by cross-form exploration. The connections between poem and image are evocative. Karen’s poems work magic alongside Michael’s haunting pictures, taking both artists’ work into new areas.

In Balancing, these artists’ work becomes a communication of lived experience through visual symbolism.

Balancing will be available for purchase at the book launch on Thurs 6 Feb, 6pm and for the duration of the exhibition.

Karen Knight was assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
