Strangers; Here; Our Selves

Two of my artist’s books – ‘Stayed’ and ‘Recognition’ were on show in the Steambox gallery from 10/9 – 20/9/15, as part of a group exhibition titled ‘Strangers; Here; Our Selves’. The exhibition showcased the work of 18 artists including Mark Connolly, Kaylee Bear Moss, Shay Gilna and Niamh McDermott.

‘Stayed’ is a new artist’s book that is hot off the press. The inspiration for this book was on a series of drawings I made using Ordnance Survey maps and other collage snippets I have been developing over the last few months. The structure is a flexagon book: a type of interactive book where the pages shift and change depending on how you open them.
