Synopsis: Sketchbooks, according to Alice Maher, are the ?freewheeling workshops of the mind ... the pool in which thousands of images and ideas float freely, rubbish and gems together, bumping into each other, some surfacing, others staying in the depths for years, waiting to be remembered?. Reservoir showcases Alice Maher?s never-before-seen collection of sketchbooks and notebooks spanning her entire career so far. These colorful, playful and evocative documents are placed alongside some of Maher?s pivotal artworks, inviting the reader to study how the artist drew from her ?reservoir? to form the cornerstones of her career. The book allows an exploration of the complex flow between inspiration and finished pieces. Beautifully crafted and designed with a full and innovative engagement with the material, Reservoir draws from Alice Maher?s celebrated body of work to become a work of art in itself.

About the Author: Born in 1956, Alice Maher was awarded a Masters degree in Fine Art from the University of Ulster and a Fulbright Scholarship to San Francisco Art Institute. Her work can be seen in significant international collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Fogg Museum; the British Museum; the Irish Museum of Modern Art; the Hammond Museum, and the Pompidou Centre. She lives and works in Ireland.

Foreword by Whitney Chadwick, art historian specialising in surrealism, contemporary art and gender issues. She is the author of the widely acclaimed study Women, Art and Society.
