New work from the Antigonish Series

Taking inspiration from the well-known poem by Hughes Mearns

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away…

A series based on our curiosities.. Victoriana – the unseen, secrecy and  obsession.

One thought on “New work from the Antigonish Series

  1. Hi. Love this work. I have been pretty moth obsessed lately. We live at the edge of a wood and moths are everywhere in our doll sized cottage as it’s been so hot the windows have all been open after dark. Flying lace !

    Here’s a response to this work in poetic form, and a homage to the poem you mentioned. I’ve been working alone late at night in the middle of nowhere … and yep, this did happen… I recently had a bereavement so guess I’m turned up to the etheric and emotional layer of life…what lies only just beneath… Here goes…x

    A voice I heard

    Which was not there

    Or might have been
    I cannot say

    It called my name
    In rustling silk

    I answered


    It fell away
