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.
