Spread out on the floor of my studio, the many stencils I drew and cut out to monoprint my unfolded life, too many to photograph all together. They make such interesting random patterns that I'm going to collage them as separate pictures - an opportunity to recycle and re-arrange one's life doesn't come along very often!
Below those are a couple of shots taken at the private view on Sunday before guests arrived. The fully opened book was displayed on a long table covered in white linen, in a serenely empty white room, sunlight softly streaming in from the garden - a marvellous space for a marvellous evening. I couldn't have imagined a better ambiance to preview this work before sending it out into the world. Thank you , mon Genie.
