I don't usually post photos of my family but this is an exception. My daughter was so thrilled to see some of the special artwork I had made for her on public display. And I think she looks as proud of her Dad as I am of her.
Since the artist books were covered in a perspex box on a raised plinth, I had made digital images of details of each book so that the audience could still get a good idea of what was in the books without physically interacting with the book.
It was a small and intimate group of participants in the floor talk so a question and answer format seemed more appropriate than "speeches". This seemed to work well and everyone seemed to be very interested in what the work was about and how it was done.
As most of my work is generally fairly small, this gives a better idea of the drawing's size.
It was a very supportive evening.
