Image of Lisson Gallery, London with art exhibition review by Drenched Co.


"What is the explanation of it all?
What does it look like to a learned man?
Nothings in nothings whirled, or when he will.
From nowhere unto nowhere nothings run."- Drenched Co
(1938 unpublished poem by W.B. Yeats)

Comment: "I have been reading my favourite Irish poet WB Yeats of late. I was reminded of him when I last saw Susan Hiller at Tate in 2011. To me, what connects them is their deep interest in the supernatural, the breadth and variety of their work and their far reaching influences with achievements through into old age ( Hiller at Lisson now surpassing Yeats). I compare them again side by side -Yeats with his unbridled passion for the occult and his abstracted notions with Hiller paying closer attention to the minutiae without any hankering obsessions. This is perhaps where the difference lies. As Lou Reed once said,"I wanna read a quote from Yates- "The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity" - now you figure out where I'm at!"" - JayZee
