Wendy Williams (SCI Artists)
Ahead of this weekend’s Liverpool Book Art Fair at Liverpool Central Library we’re bringing you a series of to-the-point interviews with some of the most exciting artists.
Book Art can be an ambiguous term at the best of times, so put simply, we wanted to find out what it means to the artists who make it. This interview, Wendy Williams, of SCI Artists, gets down to basics. Book Art, as far as this artist is concerned is an opportunity for the artist. A possibility to experiment and find new ways of working.
Read her interview here, but more importantly, buy her work here, on Saturday & Sunday, 8th & 9th of July 2017 :
What is book art for you?
Book art to me is an opportunity to experiment with different mediums not normally associated with ‘Books’, to find out what can be achieved.
Why did you decide to exhibit at Liverpool’s fair?
I wanted to show a range of my books and meet with like-minded artists. It is a chance to talk to people about my work.
What are you bringing to Liverpool Book Art Fair?
As well as my own work, I have invited members of SCI who work with recycled materials, to show how diverse the group and their work are.
Do you ever work outside of the form of books, and if so, how
I work with recycled materials and found objects. I have made large scale paper installations, which have been shown both nationally and internationally. My ‘objects’ and books have been shown at International Art Fairs, represented by SCI.
