AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The world is a place full of dark and light as is that of Sandy Jeffs. She explores this tension with a clarity that is troubled by shadows. Humour and sadness intermingle in a show that must go on. Popular culture and parodies of classic poems are used to illuminate the world for what it is.' (Publication summary)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Christine, Vassi, Maria and Pumpkin.
  • Epigraph:

    If there be light, then there should be darkness; if cold, heat; if

    height, depth; if solid, fluid; if hard, soft; if rough, smooth;

    if calm, tempest; if prosperity, adversity; if life, death. – Pythagoras

    The exceeding brightness of this early sun

    Makes me conceive how dark I have become. –Wallace Stevens.
