Work: Event 60 Nicholas Nickleby (Charles Dickens)
acrylic on beech, birch on wood
80 x 80cm, framed in a perspex box frame
this new series of works explores the idea of collected moments coming together to form an event. In this instance the artist is playing the moment just before an author writes out the first words of a book, in this case "Little Dorrit" by Charles Dickens. The first 10 letters of the book are applied to various balls in the composition making the viewer engage and search in the same way the author had to search the words in the first place.
