Spreads 18+19_Gowdy_Outline_550

This spread delves into the work of AOI Patron Carolyn Gowdy, renowned for her narrative images with text inscriptions which are populated by a cast of idiosyncratic characters. Gowdy explains her creative process, chance findings, and tales of discovery, like the inside of an old book cover found in a corner of the V&A museum on the floor, leading to unexpected inspiration. As well as commercial work – a poster for the Folio Society and a drawing for Ambit magazine on the theme of uncomfortable chairs.
