In a reciprocal process, of both reflection and refraction, Gregory’s poetry inspires the imagery of these observational studies, while the drawings give form to his words. This project seeks to render the invisible visible, giving shape to the poetic imagination and amplifying Gregory’s voice within the larger community.
