Christine Sloman_Keepsake II_Artist book


Keepsake is currently on show at the Royal Scottish Academy annual exhibition, which runs until the 11th of June.

It is an artist book in the form of a block puzzle. The blocks are lined with lithographs and monotypes printed on Japanese paper and is contained in a drop back box.

Made up from a variety of images including a found photograph and found text, the blocks can be assembled in myriad ways, but never offer a completed image or text.

This work is a play on memory and how it shifts according to context and the passage of time.
