The “Little Poems” series encompasses a few groups of images loosely linked around a theme. The author sees them as a series of “visual poetry” in the sense that, like poetry, one freely plays with the language, feelings and ideas without necessarily being restricted by any kind of structured narrative.
Although "Little Poems” was conceived as a book from the very beginning, the series was first shown at Arnold Borgerth's solo exhibition at the Cor Blimey Arts gallery in London on November 2007.
"LITTLE POEMS - a series of visual poetry " is the first of a series of self-published books in which Arnold Borgerth intends to show several projects developed along his 25 year carer as an artist.
