Artist hedges nothing as he explores poetry
David Martinello's creative spirit is explored in his fresh book of poetry called Hedged Nothing.
The Cowichanian calls 167-page Hedged "a poetic journey of self-actualization in regards to the human project."
Folks can find out why during Sunday's 4 p.m. book-launch reading at Duncan's Old Firehouse Wine Bar, 40 Ingram St.
"The collection is a philosophic, culturally textured perspective of contemplations," he said of his 15 years worth of poems "essentially written in a bubble."
His creative investigation was also seen in his imaginative pieces at Duncan's former Points Art Gallery run by Martinello between 2010 and 2012.
His exhibits showed how immersion in the arts is an important tool for awareness "informative to an understanding of character, materials and methods in cause for celebration".
