DOUG SPOWART on ARTISTS' BOOKS (Pre 2005)

The artist book in the form of boxed sets and books has been a part of my art production for fifteen years.

It grew out of my dissatisfaction with wall art and its transient communicative form that being the duration of the exhibition.

My books enable an experience for the viewer that requires no more that a pair of eyes, a tabletop or lap. The book is held and an intimacy exists between the viewer and the subject viewed a personal communication is exchanged.

The object that is the book for me is also a thing of beauty.
