A presentation by Welsh artist, Clive Hicks-Jenkins and American poet Jeffery Beam. The product of a six-month blogosphere collaboration, Spectral Pegasus / Dark Movements features Clive’s images and Jeffery’s words and visits the ancient Welsh folk tradition of the Mari Lwyd involving a skeletal mare, whilst reflecting upon the death of the painter’s father.

Clive Hicks Jenkins has won many prizes for his work and The Glyndŵr Award, given annually for an outstanding contribution to the arts in Wales, will be awarded to him this year.

North Carolinian, Jeffery Beam, is the author of over 25 award-winning works of poetry and criticism. Jeffery’s poetry also enjoys wide interpretation through chamber music and song.

Jeffery Beam and Clive Hicks-Jenkins will be joined by writer, blogger and researcher Sarah Parvin.

Sarah, who has contributed an essay to the book Spectral Pegasus/Dark Movements, lives in Yorkshire. She is the creator of The Curious One, a vehicle to explore the British imagination, through the work of its artists, illustrators, makers, poets, writers, photographers, and designers. Spectral Pegasus/Dark Movements also reprints two reviews on Hicks-Jenkins’ work by Mary-Ann Constantine and Claire Pickard that appeared in the Welsh press.
