I haven't blogged for such a long time. Here's what's new:
I am pleased to announce that my work shown in the WAH Center in New York late last year and early this year in the two shows, 'Tri-Fold : New Perspectives on Book Art' and 'Special Choice Book Arts Part 1 & 2' have been bought for The Yuko Nii Foundation permanent collection.
I'm busy getting work together for a show in Leeds that's in conjunction with with the Leeds International Artist Book Fair. The work that I proposed to make is very different from my usual work, but not dissimular in process, just in theme I think. It's about memories and lack of, family and nostalgia.
I have been making very small building blocks that represent my life. I have used old sketch books, photo albums, scrap books, diaries and school text books to make them from and I am planning on making an installation with them when I eventually make enough. And although it has been challenging the change has been refreshing.
I'm also busy getting work together for a show for the Bridewell in Liverpool that's going to be a joint exhibition with the course leader of the degree course I attended.
