15-16 artwork spotlight | wit

The final show of the season, and of our artwork spotlight series, is WIT.

The story might revolve around a woman and her cancer diagnosis, but WIT is much more than that.  Just as Vivian, the central character, is an expert in the poetry of John Donne, so the play feels like a poem in its own right.  The writing is elegant and concise, and the imagery is powerful, so we needed an image that would reflect this.  What a stunning piece of art Emily returned to us!  It has the quality of a painting, while tying in Donne's poetry.  The perfect end to our season.
