Artistic Interpretation of Haiku (Picture 6)

Julian Sutherland-Beatson will be showing a new collection of his responses to my Haiku poems as part of the Eastbourne Painters’ exhibition at the Birley Centre, Eastbourne. For full details of this and other exciting events, please have a look at the Eastbourne Festival 2012 brochure, which is available to view or download from

The Eastbourne Painters’ exhibition is open every weekend and bank holiday during the festival from 7-29 April, up until June 11th.

Here is the third sample picture from a multimedia collaboration between myself and celebrated artist, Julian Sutherland-Beatson.

At this stage, we would very much appreciate feedback about which of the three visual interpretation styles people prefer, especially with regard to where Julian has placed the words of the haiku in relation to the picture.

You can find out more about Julian from my two earlier posts this week, and by visiting

We would value some constructive feedback at this stage, to help us gauge the best direction for our project.

In 2011, Julian exhibited his art in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition,  at Glyndebourne Opera House (, in the Eastbourne Festival (, and at Gallery North, Hailsham.
