Leaving: Uphill both ways

Reclaimed Pages:
Treating pages and signatures from vintage, crumbling books as a palimpsest, I layer drawings and photographs atop. To a certain extent the existing imagery and content is considered, informing my decisions and compositions. The space of a page is taken literally, becoming a window into an imagined, intimate place.

2009     29 pages each 9"x12 1/2"     intaglio prints on found paper, installation view
