IN PART

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 time at the Burren College of Art, coordinated around the theme of the fragment. How are relationships forged with the past? I wondered how fragmentary shapes live and influence our consciousness. What can be learnt about ourselves through their contemplation?  The motion of the book flows through 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 that dialogued with oil paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Edition of one.
