Seepage No 1

Accordion book. Pages bonded with white thread quilted by a sowing machine. The ends of the threads visible. The work inspired by Liz Cashdan’s poems about Icelandic scenery. The piece has been made of Abaca fibrepaper. On the pages black texts and colourful pictures of lava eruptions. - Unique piece of art, signed by the artist.

"Seepage’ was a first response to words which described earth colours in a poem sequence by Liz Cashdan. It was also a response to the landscape of Iceland which we both experienced, and which inspired Liz to write the poem.
In Seepage, I deconstructed the poem – isolating and layering a pattern of words with colour and deconstructed drawings, colour notes and photo notes.
With thanks to Liz Cashdan for use of the words. Materials: Layered Abaca Tissue, Epson Ultrachrome inks, wax. "(Pat Hodson).
