Poetry. Art. Illustrated by Liane Birnberg. Ever since John Berger first saw Liane Birnberg's artwork in her studio many years ago, they have been connected in a friendship of high productivity for Liane. He says that her artwork has 'eyes' and continuously sends her his new books, which function as catapults for her work. Language plays a significant role in Liane Birnberg's images, but it is only recognizable through pure graphics. The words are embedded in micro-glass beads; they become distorted, and other lines and forms engulf everything. The text and the image merge, though neither belongs to the other. GARDEN ON MY CHEEK is the third book by John Berger and Liane Birnberg. The book is released by PalmArtPress in celebration of John Berger's 90th birthday.
