artist books

eavesdropping

eavesdropping - artist book


Hello, I had hoped to share a post of new work with you yesterday - but events here in England have shaken many of us and I was just not able to put together very much at all.... (Today I am determined to be a bit more focused and make the most of my time, so I am sitting down to write this before going to my studio space and working on paper).

I continue to explore the simple concertina artist book - as a fascinating way of presenting visual ideas, mark-making and narrative.

I am working on books with a variety of media - some featuring my distinctive figures, others showcasing different still life objects. Working in acrylics, gouache, ink and monoprinting allows me to display various ways of seeing.

The artist books I create may be enjoyed as folding little books, to place on a shelf, display as you may - or you might prefer to display in a glazed frame. Or another idea for display is to have the book propped within a cabinet of other, complementary objects. I can imagine the book above looking very interesting propped on a shelf or inside a cabinet alongside ceramics, for example.

I hope to share more new work with you later in the week.

A reminder my next shop update is next Wednesday, 31st at the different-from-usual time of 8pm (UK).
