“A Bunch of Dirty Books” and more

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Over the past few months I have been making art inside the house as the studio has been cold this winter. One day, when all my exhibitions are “sell-outs”, I will be able to install adequate heating in the studio. Until then,I just wear extra hats, scarves and jackets.

Lately, I have become quite addicted to bookmaking and drawing. This year I’ve made all kinds of books, using recycled, vintage papers, wallpaper, fabric and canvas mixed with found objects and new materials.

My latest “A Bunch of Dirty Books’  are made from damaged vintage medical and natural scientist books. I dirtied the pages from an old dye recipe I found and will work within the pages and eventually make an edition of around 100 or more.
