Between the Sheets: Artists' Books Exhibition 2017
will be presented by Gallery East in conjunction with Gallery Central in Perth, Western Australia from 18 March to the 8 April 2017.
Two of my books will be on exhibition.
The Legacy of Silence (2016)
I wrote a post about this book on my blog in August 2016 here.
and The Sunken Boat (2016)
This piece is a reworking of a book sculpture called Rimbaud's Drunken Boat which had been on exhibition in France and was suitable for that exhibition with it's French themed poetry connection.
For this exhibition I reworked the etching on the perspex pages (moving currents, waves, water, seaweed, fish, debris) making it more dense and filled the gaps on each page with crosses referencing lives lost at sea - a reflection on refugees who have lost their lives in Australian waters.
