TEXTURE OF SILENCE by Eugen Bacon & Steve Simpson
An ardent and confronting illustrated collection of prose poetry in a call and response from the collaborating author and artist. Darkly beautiful and subversive text that works for and against itself in rich telling and artworks of othering, climate change, mis/identity, loss, belonging, migration, hybridity, ancestry, clairvoyance, futurism, consternation and hope.
Texture of Silence broadcasts the vision of master conjurers who see through walls of time and language, dismantling as they do assumed realities.
—Dominique Hecq, award-winning poet
