Gerrit Henry (1950-2003) was an American art critic, author, and poet best known for his tendency to favour contemporary combinations of traditional representation and modernist abstraction. Here his poem "Lullabye" is presented as a woodcut by artist Hilary Lorenz. Lorenz's art draws on her love of wildernesses and hiking, creating sensory environments made from relief prints and cut paper, watercolour, and natural fibres; her prints correspond to the mystery of the poem's language through visceral marks and vibrant colours.
