Don’t be far from me was a month-long residency and exhibition at Tenderbooks by Glasgow-based artist Sue Tompkins and NYC-based artist and designer Matthew Damhave.
Tompkins’ work is closely absorbed with language. She sifts through fragments of speech and song lyrics illuminating small moments. Damhave’s paintings, zines and textile works incorporate text drawn from pop culture, music and film. He works through processes of bricolage; repairing and piecing together garments from found materials, and hand-making collages and zines. The book is a record of everyday encounters, passing conversations, and wandering thoughts. It weaves together narratives found in each of the artist’s works.
