Sam Cornish's new and selected poems, in the voices and with the lyrics of the blues, grow out of the historical and personal reminiscences and traditions of artists like Langston Hughes and Margaret Walker. The poems are autobiographical and biographical, expressed through such art forms as film ir, science fiction, blues, jazz and other aspects of American popular culture.
Sam Cornish is a writer on abstract art and curator based in London. Recent projects include a book and exhibition on the artists who worked at the Stockwell Depot, a monograph and exhibition on the UK/NZ sculptor John Panting, and the editorship of a two-volume survey of the paintings of Gary Wragg.
