During lockdown Birmingham-based artist Sarah Taylor Silverwood reflected on the process of making Hand Books, an ongoing series of small artist books and animations. In her film she demonstrates the process of creating a folded book, using black ink on watercolour paper and the subsequent animation of these drawings. Sarah was in residence in our Artists’ Studio in 2014 and her solo exhibition ‘Daphne’ took place between 19 January – 12 May 2019. Artworks by the artist, ‘The Garman Ryan Shroud’, and, ‘Kathleen and Sally series’ form part of the Gallery’s permanent collection.
