The Wasteland series

I have been working on a series of paintings incorporating mixed media. The inspiration has been T.S. Eliot's poem The Wasteland.
Six smallish canvases arranged in a grid.
I have been inspired by Anselm Kiefer and Tapies.
I am very pleased with these as I have been working on them for a few weeks and their evolution has been exciting.

The last fingers of leaf clutch and sink into the wet bank

What are the roots that clutch, what branches gro
Out of this stony rubbish?

 In the faint moonlight, the grass is singing

The wind crosses the brown land, unheard

Here is no water, but only rock

Ringed by the flat horizon only
what is the city over the mountain, 
cracks and reforms in bursts on the violet air
