No Poetry was conceived as a visual diary, with a section of the work being produced daily as collage, assemblage, painting and drawing, using mainly accumulated and found objects, linked by an old chinese calendar. The diary commenced on January 1st, culminating on August 6th, Hiroshima Day. This was in 1995 the 50th anniversary of the dropping of the atom bomb on the city of Hiroshima. The piece was exhibited for a final time on August 6th, 2001, having already been shown at both the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, is now long disassembled or reincarnated into other works.
I had conceived this piece as moving image work for some time and this is that piece, compiled from my photographic records of the original art work and competed for a gallery talk at QVMAG, Launceston, in 2012.
