The poems in this book form a series of small acts of attention, repeated attempts to step outside the circle of human concern and into a wider responsibility to the natural world. 'To move among / crashing pines / is spacious / and exact.' Yellow & Blue invites us to share the spaciousness of a book-length journey, an exacting clarity of perception.
Thomas A. Clark lives in the small fishing village of Pittenweem, on the East coast of Scotland. From 1986-2002, with the artist Laurie Clark, in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, he ran Cairn Gallery, one of the most respected small galleries of its time, showing minimal, conceptual and land art. Numerous small publications from Moschatel Press explore the structure of the book as imaginative space. His most recent collection is The Path To The Sea (Arc, 2005).
