"Another Kind of Eden: Works by John Selway"
2002-10-27 until 2002-11-09
Dylan Thomas Centre
Swansea, , UK United Kingdom

'Another Kind of Eden', Pembrokeshire artist John Selway's paintings inspired by themes in Dylan Thomas' work, will be on display in the Dylan Thomas Centre throughout this year's Dylan Thomas Celebration. Now in his fifth decade as an exhibiting painter, there is a passion and lyricism in this series of paintings, which operate as parallels to Dylan Thomas' poems.

They are inspired by Selway's own youth - particularly summer holidays in rural Herefordshire - as well as the childhood of Dylan Thomas. Selway explores the closeness of the life and death experiences, and the ecstacy and agony of sexual awakening. One of Thomas' best known poems, 'Fern Hill' is a particular influence, as are some of Thomas' short stories, such as 'The Tree'.
