Tamara Jelača ‘s embroidered illustration

Tamara Jelača has a two-weeks display in Droitwich Library, from 2 April until 16 April. She chose to show her small-format embroidery that was part of the series of illustrations for contemporary American poetry. The piece is inspired by Louis Simpsons famous poem “American Poetry”. Simpson described a poem like a silver mine. Silver does not usually sit on the top of the earth to be grabbed by any prospector. The miner needs to dig, excavate, and search for precious metal. Poetry requires the reader to do the same. For me, a poem is like a tornado. Like a powerful swoosh of ink, words and meanings.
