‘Because The Small Things Matter. They Make All The Difference’ selected for the Dublin Art Book Fair 2020

My book ‘Because The Small Things Matter. They Make All The Difference’ has been selected to be featured at the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios in
Dublin Art Book Fair 2020: Design as an Attitude from 23 November — 06 December 2020, curated by world leading design critic and author Alice Rawsthorn.

About the book;
Butterflies are associated with transformation and freedom. The emergence from a cocoon in a completely new form is a real-life metaphor for unimagined new beginnings. In August 2020, Covid pandemic notwithstanding, I was in residence at the Tyrone Guthrie Artists Centre at Annaghmakerrig.
Two varnished stretched canvases coated in Chinese inks on are bound together creating a cocoon containing a true story of resilience I found in nature during that residency. The reader is invited to untie and unfold the story of the residency, focusing on a wonderful example of simply hanging in there and being awake and open to new possibilities. Presented in a blend of text, photographs and artwork, there is an experiential surprise at the end for the reader.
