four artists’ work

Marking our Way


Marking our way is a body of work which four artists completed during the pandemic.

Inspired by creativity coach Rod Judkins, we each considered how we would design the cover of our fictional autobiography and the seeds of the project were sown. as the ideas for the book covers evolved, we started researching other artists who created overtly autographical work with which some personal connection was felt.

Spending more time at home presented an opportunity to take stock and throughtout this project we have reflected on the way we work, the work we made and the work we admire. Each has addressed the questions: Who am I? What do I do? What do I like? Why do I like them? How do I work?

Although we didn’t set out to write a book, we found the act of writing helped to clarify thoughts and to share them amongst ourselves.
