I have a box full of most of the things I have written in the last twenty years or so. I would say that themes of isolation, stillness and disintegration figure prominently. I am sometimes surprised at the violence in the images and I also have something of a preoccupation with death and altered states. I wouldn’t say I am particularly morbid or a sombre person, so I’m often surprised by what comes out. They are primarily internal imaginings and not much concerned with external descriptions. I like short sentences – space, quiet and movement. I care about the idea that language can be a means to solace and can, when employed in the correct manner, create a meditative insightful frame of mind – searching for the correct manner is an ongoing project.
Alien Rabbit are proud to publish his work Four Walks.
Richard Muirhead was born in Hong Kong in 1966 and has been living in Macclesfield since 1998. He began seriously writing poetry in the first decade of the Twenty-first century under the guidance of Macclesfield poet and artist Jo Cookson,( although his first poem, Old Age was published at age ten in the Sandroyd School magazine The Quill)
He writes in both free verse and rhyming style. His poetry reflects his experiences of schizo-affective disorder since 1987 and the simple things of every day life. His favourite poets are John Clare, John Milton and the First World War poets. Struck By The Moon, which alludes to a belief Richard had during his 1987 episode of mental illness that the moon was influencing his mood, is his first published poetry collection.
Alien Rabbit will be publishing a new collection of poetry by Richard in the new year

I lived in a cave in Italy for two months too. I ran a famous city centre art gallery , was short listed for the national portrait gallery london, have my paintings in collections internationally.
