Abstract:

For most of his life, Cecil waited patiently on a pinboard, dreaming of being in a book, like all the other creatures he saw come and go. Cecil is only a sketch, but he has a name, and he wonders, if just maybe, he might be destined for greater things. Cecil is the reader's eyes as we see books created in front of us. Cecil's imagination soars as he dreams of what book he might land in. And then one day, he does land in a book. And a new, exciting, and even dangerous, adventure begins. Narelle created this work using collage - a magical mixture of photography, sketches, lino cuts and objects. Narelle had not quite finished her work before her untimely death in late 2016, but her vision for Cecil, and his story, were complete, so that Cecil, and Narelle's work, could become the book they were meant to be.
