Opening Reception: Tuesday August 6th 5:30-7:30pm
the beginning of time humans have searched for a way to leave their
mark, have their story remembered. In this series I am exploring the
concept of evolution, rebirth, and remembrance. In this body of work I
am exploring storytelling by using the traditional format of a book,
yet deconstructing it into a new and wholly different form. Many of the
pieces reflect nature, as a nod to the paper’s humble origins. With
discarded books, each piece explores storytelling, whether through
returning to trees, or by taking on a new form. Parts and pieces are
reassembled and re-imagined to tell a story that is ever deepened by the
many stories already told in the fibers of its existence.
