The Obsessive Art of Diary Keeping - Gwen's father wrote a diary every day. Near the end of his life she asked if she could be custodian of these personal records and was disappointed to find that they revealed so very little. Determined to find an alternative and individual approach to her own diary keeping - and one that does not rely on words alone to record a life lived - Gwen collaged, edited and collated four small artist-made diaries (2012 - 2015)
