Foreshore by Lawrence Upton and Guy Begbie
Foreshore is a concertina-fold format, with a photograph on each page and text as very limited. The significance here is apparently what is not said: the silence of understatement links the book more as a visual journey, leaving the reader to ponder the significance of the shore in the title and the places depicted.
Guy Begbie is an established book artist and printmaker. He has been teaching in UK Universities since 1995. As a multi-disciplinary artist he makes works that extend parameters regarding concept and production approaches to the book form. His current book arts practice concerns paper engineering, and the transition from the two to a sculptural three dimensional as a means of interpretation of non-linear & sequential narrative.
Lawrence Upton (born London 1949, of Cornish origins) is a poet, graphic artist and sound artist, currently directing Writers Forum. Upton is remarkable for the range of his genres and forms. He is a performer, continuing and expanding the performance tradition of, amongst others, Bob Cobbing. He spent much of the first decade of this century in Cornwall; he is now a Fellow of Goldsmiths, University of London.
