Uphill both ways, I

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.
