Research Statement

Research Background Artists' books can be an exhibition in one book or an art object. This book 'from left to right' was based on the experience of breaking the writing wrist or hand. Then the learning required to write with the 'right' hand became a creative and mental challenge.
Research Contribution The artist addressed issues of meaning, writing and dyslexia in the images and text produced for this book. The work was produced when the broken bones were mending and required a new way to print one handed. In this case iron-on digital prints from the artist's photographs and scans of writing with the 'wrong' hand but in this case also the right hand.
Research Significance Many people experience the pain of breaking bones and this work addresses the cost of time and emotion involved in mending while continuing to work.
