Good conversation and other reading structures: An adulteration of truth through incessant alteration Jo Howe Book sculpture

Unexpected diversions

So, I have been able to get to the studio a little more of late, which I can say, is a real joy!

Something has definitely shifted recently, and the impact on my work for me is very noticeable. I seem to have given myself permission just to create without questioning, and that really feels right. This has generated new paths and a slight redirection in approach.

Many developments in current works are occurring, including getting ridiculously over excited about my latest purchase.

I Love its worn, haphazard appearance, the sense of its history.  Absolutely perfect to complete an ongoing work.

I have today, spent the five hours marking out text on this little beauty. I am very excited about getting this piece to completion. Not long now I feel.

I have, noticing this quite unusual behaviour for me, that I have been working on three different pieces at the same time.

This one popped up, quite unexpectedly. It seems a bit of a diversion from the other work on the go, and yet rather delightfully, I have a sense of the connection and cohesion in my thinking.

Note: There are multiple ways of ‘reading’…this is a playful exploration of this idea.

And my little book cups (for want of a better term). I continue to experiment with these forms, and I continue to be  fascinated with the addition of water to the work, the impact on the reading of the work as it evolves over time, the shift of balance between object and residue.

I think these will grow into a larger piece that will become almost its own performative piece…

All I need is to find the right book for the work and the location to show this…
