Literary Atlas Wales2018
I have been working on a new piece of work over the last year which was commissioned by the Literary Atlas Wales project. (http://www.literaryatlas.wales/en/) 12 Welsh novels written in English, 12 artists commissioned to respond to the novels and the sense of place. A kind of mapping project. I was given Alys Conran's 'Pigeon' to respond to. It is a fantastic book dealing with themes of identity and language. Beautifully written and very inspiring. It also won the Wales Book of the Year Award 2017. It was interesting to use a book to inspire a work, and so I used books to create the work - looking at old Welsh samplers, and the dry stone walls.... the piece will tour throughout galleries in Wales in 2019.
