'What is the Word'

'Seeing Beckett' Exhibition.
Liverpool John Moores, University of Chester, Liverpool Irish Festival, October 2014.
Visual response to the writings of Samuel Beckett. The work relates to Beckett's last poem, 'What Is The Word' (Comment Dire?) that explores the inability to find words to express oneself, a theme echoed in Beckett’s earlier work, and also the symptoms of aphasia that he experienced late in life”.
