With the addition of a small book press to my studio, I have a renewed interest in printmaking and art of the book. My latest project is an altered book. Other book projects can be seen in the Book Art gallery.
Good Intentions is my contribution to a collaborative project called ‘Secrets and Apology, Volume 1 and 2’, with artist Sarah Reesor. It is an altered book, with embossed pages and found text. The cover is embossed paper, acrylic paint and graphic. The title comes from the original collection of poetry by Ogden Nash called Good Intentions and the found text taken from the poems in the collection.
The two volumes will be included in the upcoming exhibit ‘Between the Pages‘, in Halifax, Nova Scotia during July 2 to August 31, 2009.
