Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice
The novel relates to elements of David Price’s practice that attempt to 'write the visual', and elements of his art-theory research that attempt to 'visualize writing'. It also describes (in disguised or coded forms) works made by Price, works made by friends and collaborators, and events that have informed and at times generated his art practice. The Fielders has a parallel, secret work, which contains all of the notes made during the writing of the novel. There are very few copies of it, and these copies have been privately printed. They have been placed surreptitiously on the shelves of a few bookshops favoured by the author, in England and elsewhere on the continent of Europe. If you are the reader then you have been given an unwanted key to a lock that you may not have wished to open.
