'The Bell Jar' is a facsimile of Silvia Plath's novel of that name with all text removed other than the first and last lines of each chapter.
It is part of a series of works exploring means of creating new or 'novel' narratives by applying process to pre-existing texts.
My work blurs the boundaries between literature and visual art. Over the years I have produced collage, texts, books, sound pieces, projections and ‘found narratives’. In 2009 I obtained a Masters Degree in Fine Art from the University of the West of England where I gained a Distinction. Since then I have self-published several book works most of which are available here on blurb. My books are also available in a number of book shops including the Book Art Book Shop in London. I have book works held in the collections of the Centre for Fine Print Research in Bristol, the Tate library in Tate Britain, and in University College London. In 2012 I contributed a work to the al-Mutanabbi Street project, an international touring exhibition of book artists which will eventually find a permanent home in the Iraqi National Library. And in 2014 I participated in an exhibition of UK & Russian book artists held in Moscow.
