To Cap It All
by John McGreal

To Cap It All is part of a series of three Artists’ Books that represent three stages of an artistic journey in the years 1995-2006 exploring the dialectic of mark, word and image. A recurrent theme in each is that of surprise.

To Cap It All relates an equally unexpected change in the following year moving into Conceptual Sculpture. In prints like Value, works in the period 1997-99 examined the toxic processes of estrangement and fetishism in bourgeois culture, the aestheticisation of the commodity-form, the historical place of Duchamp’s Readymades - and the equivocal role of the avante-garde in Modernism.

The three books show how working through these stages in visual art was a condition for the spacial writing and reading of both sound and silence in my it to you (2013), The Book of It (2010) as well as In The Face of It (2013).
