StAnza: Orcadians - Seven Impromptus

Artist Simon Manfield responds to the work of the poet George Mackay Brown.

This series of paintings and drawings by artist Simon Manfield illustrates the poem 'Orcadians: Seven Impromptus' by George Mackay Brown, which was published in his first collection, The Storm, in 1954. Brown's vision of an Orkney community fuses stillness with drama and the characters of Orkney's people are described with wit, anger, suspicion and melancholy, much like in the telling of a tale or saga.

The collection visualises Brown's depictions and is a celebration of the poet, the poem and Orkney itself. It is accompanied by a limited edition book published by Kettillonia.
