As our days get cooler (we hope), and our nights a little longer, I am looking forward to our fall season. Join me at the next show, Pressing Matters, at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art. The reception is October 7, 6-9 pm. I was excited to see one of my monoprints, Coyote Breath, on the postcard for the show! I also have an artist book included in the exhibition. (See more below)
Pressing Matters is a printmaking and artist book exhibition.
What is an artist book?
Short answer: Art in book form. Longer explanation:...too long to explain here!
The artist book I made below is a manipulative sculptural object that contains 4 hidden books with poems and quotes from some of my favorite California authors. (Jeffers, T.C. Boyle, Steinbeck, and Stegner) I used lines from these fine writers to express the idea of how we feel connected to a region. When do we become a native? What period of time determines when we are a local? When does a species become indigenous?, native vs. non-native.
SUPERFLUOUS BEAUTY- Artist Book by Holli Harmon
This architectural book form was first created by artist and architect, Kumi Korf. I had the opportunity to work with her several years ago.
