Helen Douglas: Flow Across the Page


This exhibition by Scottish book artist Helen Douglas was shown alongside Artists’ Boomarket 2019. It focused on one strand of her ongoing enquiry into bookmaking, that of flow and movement. The books and supplementary working material on display explored a meeting between the physical form of the book – using codex, concertina and scroll forms – and the flows and lines of the natural world, metre and phrasing, bodily movement, calligraphic mark and music. Through drafts and mock-ups as well as final works, the exhibition gave an insight into the artist’s working practice.
