Recommended by Suzannah (Collections Assistant): "I am fascinated by places and scenes that defy reason and stretch the imagination. Maurillo Minuzzi's Panorama I depicts a lone mountain floating in a sea of negative space, which initially feels realistic but like a place in a dream it grows stranger the longer it is observed. The mountain has the topography of land but the texture of a body, and it casts a shadow on the sky behind it. Panorama I takes the viewer to a place that is familiar to their subconscious and difficult to comprehend."

“Time for you and time for me, And time yet for a hundred indecisions, And for a hundred visions and revisions, Before the taking of a toast and tea.” - The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock, by T.S. Eliot
"Peter Milton’s prints share many qualities with the poetry of T.S. Eliot: the grand scale, ghostly vignettes, shifting perspectives, and liminal worlds, as well as a penchant for subtle references to cats in their art. ‘Visions and Revisions’, the title of which is taken from a line in “The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock”, portrays a party that appears to be in full swing with many figures dancing and socializing. However something in the scene is fractured; the figures are spread far apart, some fading into nothingness, and many staring directly out of the paper at you, the viewer. “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” tells a story from the perspective of a shy and anxious man who is contemplating attending a party and all the dooms and horrors that will befall him there. I imagine that the viewer is Prufrock, all at once subjected to“the eternal Footman” who holds your hat and coat, among the people “who come and go/talking of Michelangelo,” all while being observed by the woman who is misunderstood and misunderstands you, saying “that is not what I meant at all.” Both the poem and this print convey a powerful sense of disorientation in the midst of frivolity. This print is a haunting and faithful translation of a touchstone modernist poem from verse into visual art."
