About John A B Lansdown

Formative years in the scenic Lakelands of North West England shaped John A B Lansdown into an outside landscape painter. Making violins at the prestigious Newark School in Nottinghamshire garnered a discipline that rubbed off onto his fine art. Watercolours, sketches and oil paintings interweave his poems and plays. Selling paintings internationally, he exhibits in Bulgaria, Austria, France and England. His prime displacement activity is playing a hand-made cigar box guitar accompanied by a voice allegedly resembling a tormented alley cat.

About the Series: Pills for the Hospital Ward
Pills for the Ward series contains a placebo of verse seeking a remedy to the social illnesses plaguing our world. Pages of stanza pump fresh analysis into the cause of festering pessimism throughout society to resuscitate the heartbeat of culture. Readers with unstable blood pressure should be warned that poems and plays, sandwiched between innocuous oil paintings, jostle for attention in their attempt to diagnose poor venerable society without dismissing it as simply ‘getting-on-a-bit’. Malingering thoughts are flung far from the hospital ward by poignant illuminated prose of x-ray perception penetrating into the fabric of society.
