Title: David Jones, Poet-Painter: In the Beginning was the Image … and the Image was in the Imagination and was Made Manifest in Poetry

Citation: PRICE-OWEN, A. 2005. David Jones, Poet-Painter: In the Beginning was the Image … and the Image was in the Imagination and was Made Manifest in Poetry. In: KINSEY, C. and LLOYD-MORGAN, C. eds. Imaging the imagination: an exploration of the relationship between the image and the word in the art of Wales. Llandysul: Gomer Press. pp. 36-61.
Abstract: The chapter analyses key images which, although personal to the Welsh poet/painter David Jones's particular experiences, became conduits for his expression of universal themes that he explored though his painting and poetry in terms of his Welsh identity. Metamorphoses, characteristic of Celticity, and the evolving history and culture of Britain, accounted for his perception of the world as a natural phenomenon in a flux whereby mutuality and mutability oscillate between images and words. Rationale of the chapter: The essay positions David Jones as the leading exponent of uniting word and image. Unlike his fellow imagists, he created a synthesis of image and text, whereas the others’ paintings are largely responses to words which influence particular works, rather than images prompting poetry, as in Jones’s case.
Description: The project evolved from the touring exhibition 'META', sourced by editor Kinsey and author Price-Owen, in which eight painters’ works were interpreted by eight poets. The exhibition preceded the publication evaluating the significance of the Word in Welsh artists' image-making.
