Notes:
"Drawings from train journeys between London, my present home and Norwich, my family home, were the starting point for this book. Following a bicycle accident resulting in an operation to wire my broken left elbow and a stay in hospital, Bloom has been the outcome of both a physical and emotional journey. The exterior of the folded structure consists of a sequence of black and white lithographic images of the train journey; there and back, also considering the complex act and definition of “leaving home”. Four individual sections extend to reveal the inside of the book. Freesias are screenprinted in two pinks depicting the delicate balance of life and the emotional and physical effects of a single moment. The night after the surgery I drew the flowers that were given to me while in hospital. Printed with one broken elbow, this has been the measure of my healing."--Artist's description, from Centre for Fine Print Research website.
