Stonington Public Library.
As a way to process and document my experience at Haystack last summer, I made 3 artist books which I hoped might capture a bit of my time there, the surrounding place as well as experiences in the studio. The books are a collection of 'sorts'. They are made from materials that I gathered: book pages from the Deer Isle dump, others from my CA. studio; old Maine maps purchased from Karna's shop in Belfast, ME; stone images, laser cut and printed onto wood veneer and book pages; milk paint, encaustic wax and coffee sticks from the Haystack dining hall.
Upon reviewing the colophon that I had written, I realized that I had repeated the word, "overlooking" several times. The word suggested to me that I rethink what I was making. My direction shifted and the word, "overlook" became a focus.
These books are a beginning of an exploration of form with the word, "overlook" as a focus.
