Felix Cheong interviews Frieda Hughes (2004) [Singapore, UK]:
FC: How much of your work as a painter has influenced you as a poet?

FH: Not at all. One answers a need in me that the other can’t take care of. With painting, I can be a lot more expressive. Poetry requires a definition, a caution, an absolute directing of the thought. For me, that’s how I look at it.

I always see things as a film clip in my head anyway. When I’m writing a poem, I’m actually writing a vision in my head that’s happening. I’m trying to express it in that way.

What I can’t do in a poem is to get really wild about it. And now that I’m painting in abstracts – and I’m painting quite large – I can really get out a lot of the energy on there. Whereas, the poem is a condensation of emotion.
