‘All one breath – portrait of John Burnside’ 2017

“This is a fine portrait, the man’s true likeness, bardic in his white shirt, the wren on his wrist (dryw in Welsh and early Scottish) suggesting druid, bard. Most haunting is the second likeness, an unfinished profile beyond the first, the poet’s soul.” Gillian Clarke
