The Great Gathering
Having just returned from the Artist Book Fair in Norwich, the momentum to finish this project continues. Three of seven books are now complete, while the other four are taking shape and under way. These three books were well received by visitors and generated lots of interesting conversations. An older gentleman, initially bemused, was honest in saying "I don't get it". Rather than just walk away we had a long conversation about book art. He took the time to listen and ask about the project. After a short while he smiled replying "oh yes, I see". As exhibitor, it is moments like these that are so meaningful - someone has taken the time to reflect and be open to a new perspective.
I am also part of Bookscapes Collective.
Bookscapes is a group of six artists that have developed a group practice specialising in site specific interventions and exhibitions.
