‘Diaries, Journals and Notebooks’
An exhibition of the book works of Steve McPherson
For over 15 years Steven McPherson has made and used books in his art works. His diaries, journals and notebooks are a growing wunderkrammer library that ordinarily describe events of the everyday and uniquely exist as part book, part sculpture.
The exhibition at CFPR , delivers a glimpse into six of McPherson’s works. From the earliest accidental beginnings through a formulation of the idea and to subsequent and parallel developments, the books on display reveal an artist whose obsessive play and practice constantly evolves and re-invents itself in a quest not to rely on rigid constructs.

The exhibition runs from 9th October to 7th December 2008, at the Centre for Fine Print Research, School of Creative Arts, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK
