The blank page is peopled with infinite stories, but the writer unconsciously chooses the best angle between their own inner conundrums and the invisible pressure of the times” writer Ben Okri observes in the introduction to his illuminating and profoundly touching collaboration with painter Rosemary Clunie. Twenty five paintings, lived with over five years, were the seed bed for twenty five stories, contemporary fairy stories which gleamwith the same evanescence as Clunie’s dreamy colour, her tough, wiry drawings reflecting in turn Okri’s underlying narrative steeliness.
