eleven bookworks

Book art group exhibition at Tenderbooks.
3-5 pm Saturday

My book work is based on mental illnesses. The idea was to represent the different feelings a person who struggles with illnesses such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder and schizophrenia can experience. This is represented through the scrolling images, as well as through the cover (or box). I wanted something that would appear solid, strong and linear, but is in reality more fragile and slightly distorted. As for the form of the book, I took inspiration from the ancient Egyptians who would record events on papyrus scrolls.
