I’ve just delivered my second novel to my agent for submission to publishers … and I’m about to plunge back into my third. It’s an exciting full-of-possibilities time and I wish the novel well out there in the real world. And in the meantime I wish fellow-novelist, Helen Chandler all the luck in the world with her first novel Two for Joy, just out.
And the thing I would love to have imagined and made, this month, is Cornelia Parker‘s Cold Dark Matter : An Exploded View:
I resurrect things that have been killed off … . My work is all about the potential of materials – even when it looks like they’ve lost all possibilities. (She said that here: http://www.artseensoho.com/Art/DEITCH/parker98/parker2.html)
I like that idea, of making art from things that appear to have lost all possible life.
