Poetry. Art. Edited by Stanley H. Barkan with artworks by Alessandro Actis, Gianpiero Actis, R. Gopakumar, Adel Gorgy, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, and Marsha Solomon. "The Irish poet W.B. Yeats said, 'Words alone are certain good.' And they are. But when a poet's work is placed in relation to a painting or a photograph, we can often get an amplifying and expanding of the bird-like track of words on the snow of the page. Indeed, it can be a double blessing: the bird's song and the bird's world. It can be another way of interpreting Dylan Thomas's 'the colour of saying.' Lidia Chiarelli's precise snapshots of poems, beautiful and echoing in themselves, are heightened in this collaboration with artist and photographer. The wedding of her careful words, her poetic voice, to such striking images is a personal endorsement of the universal work she does with IMMAGINE & POESIA."–Peter Thabit Jones

Lidia Chiarelli was born and raised in Turin, in northern Italy, where she studied English Language and Literature at the University of Torino. For several years, she devoted herself to teaching English in secondary schools, and included "creative expression" courses in her teaching methods. She organized a unique mail art exhibition at Giuseppe Perotti School (Torino, 1990), and became acquainted with many artists in the process, especially with the Canadian digital artist Sarah Jackson. Her long distance collaboration with Jackson, and with British writer Aeronwy Thomas, led her to co-found the artistic literary Movement Immagine & Poesia, presented at the Alfa Teatro di Torino in 2007. After visiting the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2010, Lidia was inspired to create installations similar to Yoko Ono's Wish Tree, hanging not only wishes, but poems and original works of art on cards from the trees. Lidia Chiarelli's "Poetry & Art Trees" thus began to appear in different exhibitions in Piedmont and abroad. Lidia became an award-winning poet in 2011 and 2012, recipient of the Premio Il Meleto di Guido Gozzano, Agliè 2011 (Segnalazione di Merito) and 2012 (Terzo Premio poesia inedita). In June 2011 she was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from The First International Poetry Festival of Swansea (U.K.) for her broadside poetry and art contribution. Her writing has been translated from the Italian into English, French and Romanian. She is the author of IMMAGINE & POESIA: THE MOVEMENT IN PROGRESS (Cross-Cultural Communications, 2013).Review:
The poems in Lidia Chiarelli s impressive debut collection, Immagine & Poesia, remind us that each human being is a universe complete with suns and moons, eclipses, tidal pulls, and dry deserts and art is the telescope that allows us to see into other universes. As Emily Dickinson wrote, forever is composed of nows, and these intimate, carefully examined and faithfully rendered verses convey a portrait-like quality, presenting portraits of a moment. These are Impressionist paintings of poems acutely observed, vividly and delicately rendered celebrations of the moments of beauty that surround and permeate us. Physical sensations combine with emotion and reflection to imbue each work with multiple layers of meaning. The imagery is varyingly dramatic, precise, concrete, cosmopolitan or bucolic, expressing a sense of place and atmosphere. Each poem, each line is meticulously constructed and polished, and each is a work of art that imparts sensations to and summons responses from the reader. Beyond the descriptive, there is an evocation of wonder, loss, exhilaration, tenderness, fear all those things that make the human experience familiar to all of us. The more personal, the more universal. Sometimes, as in all our experiences, there are darker passages, as in Garden in May The tired petals on the stones of the path will form the drawing of this uncertain time that the wind will continue to break down in a ruthless game. It will be the time when even the swallows (in rapid elliptic flights in the pearl sky) come and play again unaware of their fate But there is also whimsy, as in Tiffany wonder, in Manhattan and Niagara, and surprising turnabouts, as when, in Winter Concert, after . . . Dazzling the lights of the shop-windows give way, and the city oddly empty wraps us up in a damp embrace. How different would that city and that moment be, if the embrace were cold or warm, or anything other than damp? But on the whole, these are joyous works, expressing optimism and love of life, as in The Rest of the Boats, Unplanned destinations stood out in front of us when strong and safe we left to challenge the wind. Through these pages, the poet s mind wanders freely as the wind, reaching unplanned destinations, touching all aspects of life, and that which can scarcely be contained by sails can only be truly captured in poetry and art. This collection is organized into six sections, offering reflections on Images and Poetry, childhood, the seasons, the rhythm of life, travel, and ending with a special poem dedicated to Lidia s friend and fellow poet, Aeronwy Thomas. Each poem is presented alongside a work of art, created or selected by the artist for it. Lidia Chiarelli has devoted much of her time to founding and furthering the artistic and literary movement, Immagine&Poesia, which brings together for collaboration, publication and exhibition the works of poets and artists from all over the world. Her sense that art and poetry motivate one another is deeply rooted and actively lived her husband, Gianpiero Actis is an accomplished painter. The success of this idea can be witnessed in the absolute harmony of the poems in the collection and the accompanying works of art by painter, Gianpiero Actis, photographer, Alessandro Actis, photographer Adel Gorgy, painter Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, painter Marsha Solomon, and painter Gopakumar. Each of these pairings is a conscious and deliberate collaborative effort; works inspired and informed by each other or chosen expressly for each other. The artworks are not to be understood as illustrations for the poems, nor are the poems captions for the pictures. They are compound artworks composed of, as the movement states, images and poetry. The poems in Images and Poetry stand securely on their own. --from the Preface by Mary Gorgy
