Irina Kuzminsky's Artists and Lovers explores the well known from Turner, Picasso and Keats, to the anonymous and little known, from poets to dancers to painters, these poems sweep through mythology and art, gathering inspiration from tiny Sumerian seals of antiquity through to Brancusi's birds and Michelangelo's Pieta. Irreverent and intense, both challenging and challenged, this is one woman's take on the twin passions of her life - love and art. Both are engaged with as she quests for a woman's language of a lived poetry of both mind and heart.
Irina Kuzminsky has spent her life on a quest for the feminine face of God. Living the quest through poetry, dance and music has been her life's work. Her academic background includes a scholarship to Oxford where she wrote her doctorate on the 'Language of Women' and was elected Junior Research Fellow in Humanities. Poetry publications include Dancing with Dark Goddesses, light muses (with artist Jan Delaney), Contemplations, Into the Silence, and poems in Diamond Cutters and Soul of the Earth. As Irinushka she has released three CDs of her poems set to music, Would That I Could, Roads Travelled and Orpheus Sings. Irina has performed her one woman dance, poetry and music show Dancing with Dark Goddesses in the UK, Germany, US and Australia.
