Desire : the collective unconscious

Artist's Book
1989 (published)
Artist/Maker
Place Of Origin

This small square, red book has a textured cover reminiscent of a wicker chair seat. The title “Desire” is printed in black ink along with a floral pattern, which is at odds with the graphic images within the piece.

"A densely beautiful maze of memories, faces and words. All the parts that make it up, the snatches of conversation, the stolen shots, an eye, an ear, a mouth, the intense saturated colour, are held in place by a grid of fencing wire. Images and text printed in colour and overlaid throughout. Published by Nexus Press, Atlanta in conjunction with Weproductions on an artist in residency scheme."
