A conversation about how Shane Jones’s paintings influenced the writing of The Door by Dmetri Kakmi.

About This Event:

Join author Dmetri Kakmi and painter Shane Jones, for an engaging discussion about how painting influences writing. How does the writer use an artist’s work in the writing of fiction? How does the artist feel about the process? And how does it alter his attitude to his own work?

Dmetri Kakmi is a writer and editor. For 15 years he worked as senior editor at Penguin Books. His memoir Mother Land was shortlisted for the New South Wales Premier’s Literary Awards, and is published in England and Turkey. He edited the acclaimed children’s anthology When We Were Young. His essays and short stories appear in various anthologies. The Door and Other Uncanny Tales was released in September 2020.

Shane Jones has been a practising artist for over 40 years. He has a wide range of subject matter and although painting is his main focus, drawing, printmaking and sculpture also attract his attention. He has exhibited widely throughout Australia. His work is represented in the State Library of Victoria, The National Gallery of Australia and in many university and regional gallery collections.
