Sampling The Nun & the Poet : Jerusalem (New Works by MB Stoneman)

A new exhibition in Whanganui and Stratford features poems and artworks by MB Stoneman. The little booklet that accompanies the show is like a visual and audible dance in shifting light and shadows. The poetry is pared back but the detail shines. The artworks alluring. The poet/ artist has kindly given me permission to share the introduction, a few images and a poem. If you are in Whanganui and later Stratford there is still time to catch the show. The work is inspired by a nun, Meri Hohepa, James K Baxter, and a visit to Jerusalem with Hemi’s poetry books .
