Discarded books.....

There is something about books being open on the floor that is really unnerving. I guess most of us have to subdue the echos of the teachers remonstrations, 'pick up that book!'

This installation seems to be much more powerful than the others (below) of this work, Withdrawn. I am currently exploring the possibilities of putting this piece into a show at the RWA with Jamaica Street Artists. More details to follow soon.

My new book-work

This book is the culmination of my Unsaid Words project which has spanned two years, at least. You can find out more about the project and the poetry books which are now published and on sale at Trigger Editions.

Exhibiting at Howard Gardens

This installation at Howard Gardens gallery in Cardiff has just come down. It was great to have the chance to put this piece, called 'Withdrawn', up in the cabinet there but is has made me question again what is the best way to view this work. How does the glass interfere? Does it add anything? I'm thinking at the moment about installing the work for a show in January with Jamaica Street Artists. I would like to do something really different to this and investigate how differently people interact with it. I would be interested to see the books look strew text down on the floor....
