Artists Books Course at Creative Cohesion Sunderland With Theresa Easton, The Conclusion


This is my final book “Alice’s Adventure” E Kane (2010) ©

It is produced in an edition of 3. The concertina book consists of a black and white silkcreen print layered over acrylic painting. Finished with glitter, acrylic varnish, hand drawn and collaged elements.

Living in Whitburn and studying in Sunderland (BA Hons Fine Art) I was interested in Carroll’s connection to both places. Lewis Carroll enjoyed the sea views at Roker when visiting his cousin Margaret Wilcox (wife of the Collector of Customs in Sunderland) resident of Highcroft, Whitburn. This became one of his sources of inspiration.

The clocks featured in the book where either made by Sunderland chronographers or sold by retailers in Sunderland. The final two page spread is based on an original drawing of Roker beach.

I cannot express in words how wonderful this course has been. Theresa has been a real inspiration and as a result of this course my book will be shown in a group exhibition (details will follow) and I am also taking part in the“An Inventory Of Al-Mutanabbi Street” artists book project.
