"Inspired by a conversation with Helen Douglas, when discussing the working practice of her friend Ian Hamilton Finlay. I was reminded of his (IHF) Valentine card works with Gary Hincks that I had previously acquired at a book fair in London. The text is overlaid on transparent Japanese paper, so can be read either way: as the pathway to knowing with certainty that one is loved is often problematic. Hence, a lover's knot."--Description provided by the artist.
