So I am sending a book to a show in London, I am excited about this because if I can’t go home at least my work can! Needless to say I have conceived an over elaborate homage to Randi Parkhurst’s Patience as my submission. (We were required to make a book inspired by another book or book artist). I have wanted an excuse to make a Chinese box of hidden books ever since I saw this video, and now I am! I am working from the inside out, and I want to use only materials that are already in the studio, “preserving” old paper and of course the stories of my “mad” women as I go. Here is a little peak at what I have begun… also I need to say an ENORMOUS thank you to Kimberly Hogan Hambric for her useful advice on stabilizing old paper, which she uses in her amazing wall quilts.
