An artistic production which has spanned across painting, sculpture, and print has been held together by the narrative. The artists’ book presents the opportunity to compress the diversity of media between two covers. The book represents a laboratory for ideas, a repository for image and writing, a documentation of public projects, and a diary and travel journal. These books are in important library collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, V&A, British Library, New York Public Library, Manchester Metropolitan University.
