Peter Bland, Unity Books and The Cuba Press warmly invite you to the launch of Just Looking, a collection of Peter’s poems about painting and other visual images, drawn together for his 85th birthday. To be launched by Gregory O’Brien.
About the book
An avid collector of works of art, and long fascinated by how artists see the world, Peter Bland has drawn together poems for his 85th birthday that he’s written over the years about paintings and the visual image. Never the name-dropper or cultural snob, he lines up art by a child alongside art by Brueghel or Gauguin, and then takes the reader into the story of the painter or the painting, both shining new light and deepening the mystery.
