Artist Notes:
This book, designed and printed by Nicolas McDowall at the Old Stile Press, Llandogo, places new translations of the great Romanian poet, Lucien Blaga (1895-1961) alongside specially-commissioned images by Sara Philpott. The printing plates have been generated as polymer blocks from drawings and collages which allow a freedom and serendipity of mark-making out of which energetic images emerge. The artist has carried out several artists’ book projects with the Old Stile Press, and is also a painter whose beautiful and mystical landscapes can regularly be seen at the West Wales Art Centre in Fishguard.
