influences

During a stimulating and successful day at ArtBookArt (HOFS), I was asked who I thought my 'influences' were.  

I found myself at quite a loss because I have moved so far from any influences I might have felt to start with, if I ever did.  There is undoubtedly a whisper of Ed Rucha about my postcard books and I could site a number of obvious choices re using 'found objects', but, when it comes down to basics, they are all 'accessories after the fact'!  I make books because I have…

Book arts on my Art blog ArtSmartTalk

Another book related post on my ArtSmartTalk blog - this time about the Shahnama, the ancient Persian epic bristling with brave Kings, heroic deeds, fierce demons, and mythic battles.

What is it about the Book?

Recently with a group of students I discussed; what is it that makes the book so enduring and enticing as a medium of expression? It took a while for them to understand the question. For the college age student is more involved with their computer than probably any other medium, even art students. I kept at it though... what is this thing, this object that has so changed the entire direction of humanity?

Finally it started to come. The book as an object, a technology, a work…

New Art Museum in Tasmania to include massive Kiefer book work

"Anselm Kiefer’s monumental Sternenfall/­Shevirath ha Kelim, 2007, a haunting installation of lead books on steel shelves with broken glass, which was first shown at the Grand Palais in…
