The second copy of my embroidery and etching book The Lady’s Garden. These two books were created for the exhibition Banned Books at the Baillieu Library, details here. I’m in some good company, Eyewitness by Theo Strasser and Peter Lyssiotis is something else.

masquerading femininity

The results of backyard etching and a long day printing. This book is one of a pair to be shown as part of a group show in a few weeks. Examining definitions of femininity and how these have influenced the censoring of information for the protection of women’s delicate sensibilities. The imagerey is specifically in response to the garden imagery of DH Lawrence’s Lady Chatterly’s Lover.

Some hurried shots of the book I completed last week. Today I’m installing my show Delicate Territories at the Baillieu Library. It will be on till the end of May. I will hopefully get some nice shots of my works in their fancy professional display cases.

Here is a copper frog for no real reason.
