Monograph, Painting, Illustration, Poetry

This book comprises a selection of paintings, drawings and poems by London-based poet and painter David Robilliard (1952-1988). Combining figurative elements with text taken from his poems, his paintings employ coded language, wry wit and a melancholic tinge to impart narratives of passing infatuations, sexual encounters and life’s tragedy, as the spectre of HIV looms towards the end of his life. Besides reproductions of artworks, the book includes an exclusive audio CD of Robilliard reading his poems in 1987. With texts by Andrew Wilson and Gregor Muir.
