In our publications we abstain from the usual CV with listings of exhibitions and biographical data. These can be read on your website. On request, we add to our aesthetic consideration of your works a short vita in the form of an elevator pitch. If necessary, the vita can be incorporated into the consideration of art in a way that is both concise and entertaining. (The consideration of a sophisticated vita-text costs extra.) Undoubtedly, the interplay of poems, gifts and refined statements raises the value of your pictures. It is above all the poetic context that sets our art books apart from others.
poems and entertaining forewords
Our Studio Gallery "Apollinaire" is an oasis of art and relaxation, set amid the same beautiful surroundings where the French poet and art critic Guillaume Apollinaire once walked. He had an intercultural personality. The artistic considerations of the images and the haiku poems in our books and blog posts are usually written by Gabriele Walter. (Haiku poetry is very popular, not only in Japan but across the world.)
As a writer and journalist, Gabriele Walter has many years’ experience working with renowned publishers. Among other things, she has had books published by Baedeker, the oldest German travel publishing house, and in the famous “Merian live!” travel book series. In their style, her considerations are inspired by the art-critical texts of Guillaume Apollinaire; they are written in collaboration with the curator Kurt Ries.
Her popular haiku poems have been published in several books and are presented at the international “Enter into Art” exhibitions together with her relaxing music – an interaction of art, poetry and sound. Not only in the field of poetry does she see herself as an “artist of the word”. Likewise, her essays on art are suffused with poetry, paying tribute to the thinking of Guillaume Apollinaire. He too was an art critic and poet at the same time; he wrote his art criticism texts in a meditative frame of mind and emphasized again and again the connection between poetry, music and painting.
