New Post No1

Last week I spent a few days organizing my sketch-books, notes, notebooks, scraps of paper, post-it-notes, photos, pages from the magazines and newspaper, press releases, samples, links - oh, and everything else that has an ability to accumulate and pile up!

Anyway, I have decided to start putting some of the stuff on the blog, to keep more space on my shelves.

About me:
At the moment I am studying for an MA in Book Arts at Camberwell College of Arts. My background is in linguistics. My main interests lie in
memory: it's ephemerality, fragility of it, loss of it; memory and identity, the links to the past, changes in those links.
2. interpretation of art: art as language; translating thought into visual and verbal;
the way language entraps our thinking; Wittgenstein; relationship between object and concept and word; mapping meaning; etc.
things absent, unsaid, erased, gone and therefore assumed, supposed, inferred
pretend reality
things secret, private, hidden and dark.
things morbid and whimsical, like Gastlycrum Tinies by Edward Gorey.
7. things that
Ghibli does.
all sorts of other stuff I may have forgotten now.

My work ranges between the work on paper to ceramics (and a combination of both):
drawings/collages, books, firing books, ceramics.
