As the semester chugs along I have been continuing to work on several running works, my plaster sculpture, my book pages and my avocado cloth work. While at first my book pages intimidated me, I am now feeling much more happy with the work. I have been treating the pages as if they are cloth and began to embroider and embellish them.
The materials being used on the book mages thus far are varied: gold leaf, Swarovski crystals, human hair (my own and my family’s), gold and copper thread, copper wire, prescription depression, pain and nerve medicines, lichen, and vagina prints made with MAC lipstick- which has inspired the name for this work, Heroine. I am allowing the work to come to me naturally and trying to to be pushed into making for the sale of a time line.
