In 2010-2011, Jacqui Rowe took part in the Making Art History project, in which twelve contemporary artists responded to Wightwick Manor, a National Trust property near Wolverhampton. For the subsequent exhibition, she produced a series of postcard sized copper etchings on which to present Paint, her poems inspired by a house full of pattern, texture and colourful characters - Indian princesses, a cuckolded art critic, Britain's first female civil servant and a Hollywood star. Multi-layered as several coats of gloss, the sequence offers a virtual tour of Wightwick Manor through a melange of parody, pastiche, documentary, humour and pathos.
Jacqui Rowe's other publications include Blue (Flarestack, 2007) and Apollinaire (Perdika, 2009).

"A wonderful and beautifully written evocation of place. Every line offers something surprising; like exploring a new and intriguing location, one stumbles on gem after gem." Roz Goddard
