Flying High is based on my experience of microlighting in the Pyrenees, France during the summer of 2001. Cut from a map of the Pyrenees. The reverse side is screen-printed in colors and textures that I felt represented my memories of the summer heat and landscape. The architectural folds and concertina style binding represent the terrain and patterns cutting through the Pyrenees.

The roads and map markings acted as a template to cut out windows through the book to engage the viewer and bring both sides together.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
