Notes


Gommie is “recognised in art world (for his) iconic, poetic paintings with provoking quotes and truths”.

“Walking is essential to Gommie’s practice. Immersing himself in the essence of the UK and meeting fellow islanders allows him to write and paint poems on maps based on the spontaneous and honest things people share with him. Always resourceful, Gommie navigates the area with an OS map, which doubles up as a canvas and he uses whatever paint, ink or mud is to hand to capture the spirit of what he sees and those he meets. The result is a dazzling, explosive work of art – covered in paint, doodles and single sentence poems and phrases inspired by the part of the country he is in.”

“I use simple words and repetitive images to form a handcrafted visual poem full of shape, life, feeling and colour… I like to find the fun… The lightness. The bounce. The positivity. I like works to be childlike and full of wonder and wit. I adore life. I adore poetry. I write simple phrases with the word ‘poem’ above them because I believe ‘the truth is like poetry, and poetry is f**cking everywhere’.” - Gommie, 2021
