I’ve finished the peace alphabet for ALAW early. I wanted to make sure it came in on time.
The idea underlying my alphabet is that we are surrounded by constant noise and busyness in our everyday lives (represented by the different weights and directions of text that make up the sections of the book structure). At intervals through the book are the letters, calm, translucent and delicate, moments of peace in a hectic world.
This has definitely been a reflection of my world recently. The only sustained art work I’ve managed to do over the past few months has been this project. Hopefully with the New Year things will calm down a bit.
