In conversation with other book artists, in particular Cheryl Penn, a method of work is identified without having conscious, or objective (if there is such a possibility), thought: e.g. that of layering. A quote from Cheryl I remember: life can be so over and over: well, yes, it is, rather. Hardly does one find singular meaning in any one action, unless one is prepared to move to a state of utter/complete non-action.
So these experiments in my brand new photoshop programme (What A Gift!, thanks Kevin – he’s not on the ‘net), are layered images.
The 2nd image, Hand, was directly inspired by an artist called Jennifer Davis. In my reader, surprise, surprise, during the week pitches up a show of hands: Belinda Broughton, Syncopated Eyeball and Elan Mudrow
What’s that sound? Of one hand clapping? Some koan or other?
