started to document doorways lost - No. 71 February 2012 of the book arts newsletter ISSN 1754-9086 is out – published at the CFPR and edited by the wonderful Sarah Bodman – it can be accessed at http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/newspdfs/71.pdf my latest bookwork created for journey to the podium is listed on page 25.
a full day working on the large books for firstsite, thinking about the repeat symposium tomorrow at nuca, looking forward to seeing all the journey to the podium work at the Beecroft Art Gallery, Station Road, Westcliff on Sea, Essex – i’m taking the work down to be hung on thursday - the private view is on 2nd feb
meanwhile managed to see the new steve mcqueen film shame – a film so relentlessly boring that it moved into the realm of wonderful – the darkness, real time filming, and the claustrophobic way in which the lead characters life and flat is documented make it truly oppressive.
