THE LIGHTWEIGHT – WATERCOLOURS, LITHOGRAPHS & WOODCUTS

While at the Book arts village of Octon, in the Languedoc region of France, I made a number of maquettes, or working models for an artist book project called the The Lightweight.  The  text was from  Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being which reflects  on the philosophical tradition of dividing the world into pairs of  positive/negative opposites. Kundera finds the light/weight pair particularly intriguing:  for which is positive: lightness or weight?  While my final Lightweight book never got made, other pictures emerged, in a variety of media, as a bird and a pear reflect playfully on the same question.    For further details read my BLOG ARTICLE  THE LIGHTWEIGHT .
