Imprint information from Artists' book yearbook, 2010-1011.
"These books form part of a series based on a film with which I have been obsessed for years: 'I know where I'm going' (Powell & Pressburger, 1945)"--Artists' book yearbook.
"The inspiration for many of my current pieces comes from a 1945 film called 'I Know Where I'm Going'. My unique books often relate to a particular character in the film and contain the words that character speaks; bits of the script also trickle into other work, snippets of dialogue, forming and reforming, taking on new meanings and telling different stories. I also use half-remembered lines of songs and poems so that text forms an integral part of many of my pieces, shaping their form in the process."--Artist's statement.
Hand cut pages, ink paint and thread.--Artist's website.
