Joint Winner of the 2014 Michael Hartnett Poetry Award, The Painter’s House is Jo Slade's fifth, full-length poetry collection. In 2010 she published a chapbook, The Artist’s Room (Pighog Press,Brighton UK 2010.) In her latest collection of poems, Jo carries on the theme of “who is seen and who is seeing?” (Fanny Howe, 2010.) She traces identity through language and the image, from her experience of displacement and difference to a life lived in the presence and practice of art. It is through 'seeing' and an instinctive sense of the importance and transience of the details of eye and ear that her poetry evolves. Shifts of season are deeply felt as reflections on loss, the passing of time and the stillness at the heart of being. There is also in these poems an elusiveness, a searching,  a “slow meditation of vision” (Maeve Kelly, 2011) that demonstrates a quest for a deeper understanding of the essential things. From the first poem in this collection, ‘Time-Piece’ to the last, ‘Today’, Jo Slade takes us on a journey through time and reminds us of the value of intuition, of finding individual expression for our experience of being in our mysterious, often chaotic world.
