UWE Bristol Talks: Thinking by the Book

Thursday 16 March 2017, 18:00 to 19:00

Join artist and researcher Sarah Bodman, Programme Leader MA Multidisciplinary Printmaking at UWE Bristol, as she discusses some contemporary examples of artists working within the format of the book, and how they develop these intricate, narrative-based artworks.

From Dmitry Sayenko’s ‘primeval’ image-text works, Tim Mosely’s sensory exploration of the printed page in ‘Kanage Pholu Wanda’, to the hand embroidered ‘String Theory’ series by Candace Hicks; artists’ books offer a means of exploring thinking and making through structure, touch and pace as intimate, hand held, narrative artworks.
