An accordion artist’s book inspired by the continuity of ancient scrolls, made in 2016. Detailed interior images here. The book contains elements of research from my time at the Burren College of Art, coordinated mostly around the theme of the fragment. How are relationships forged with the past? Fragments are often the only forms which persist after long swathes of time. I wondered how fragmentary shapes live on and influence our consciousness. What can be learnt about ourselves through their material contemplation? The motion of the book flows through various poems and prose writings on greek torsos, sapphic fragments, irish bog bodies, meditations on longing, memento mori, and journal entries of recent experiences. Throughout the book images rendered in water colour, ink, and collage, interact with the text. The final manifestation of this project was realized in a multi-media installation, which dialogued with large scale oil paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Edition of one.
