|THE SUN - Leanne Bridgewater|
|QUIET NOW - Leanne Bridgewater|
Leanne Bridgewater is a UK visual poet with the belief that words are overrated. Expressions are waves, like heat, blowing at different temperatures. Vision is best distorted, becoming abstract, allowing readers/viewers to see multiple meanings. Her work is inspired by nature and manipulation. Her drawing of text into asemic comes into a 'pareidolia' (seeing faces in patterns) state.
Leanne is involved in film, poetry, movement, visuals and runs workshops on creative writing. Her book Dharma Dialog is a visual text comic, discussing how we’ve forgotten we are animals.
It is with great sadness that I add this note to Leanne's page; she died in 2019. A remarkably gifted, joyous and generous person -- she is much missed.
This little handful of YouTube links will give further routes to reach her through her work, now that she is gone:
