Description

Excerpt from Visionary Portraits:Within a crease of brain
a world unfolds
to slip between the page
and what is written on it:
the brain's unknowing world,
becoming known.
"The elegant nuances, the intervention and accumulation of detail in each of these illustrative portraits mutate as if perceived through the lens of a highly sensitive kaleidoscope. As the writer assembles his night-bathed images, he traces his own portrait, and each line, each image, rings with the resonance it hankers for."? Lola Lemire Tostevin
"When Paul Dutton says ‘visionary,’ he means what the eye can see, and what the heavens allow the seeing eye."? George Bowering
"Paul Dutton's Visionary Portraits is an amazing book, both in language and content. It gives me a sense of night, and the visual mind at work, opening itself to the world."? David Donnell
