Harrison Center for the Arts Book Show “Bookmark”

I currently have a piece in an exhibition at the Harrison Center for the Arts in Indianapolis.  The show is entitled “Bookmark” and is put on in conjunction with the Herron Art Library.  Here is a link to a short video from the opening: http://tinyurl.com/9qau3s7.  More information about the Harrison Center is here: http://tinyurl.com/8fbzgve.  My piece is titled “Gravity“; it is a folded postcard style book.  Each image in the book has a short thought or description that precedes it.

Sorting things out….

Here is a picture of my “palette”. These happen to be pieces of paper billboards. When they remove them from the billboard structure they are scraped off in sheets, with as many as 15 layers of advertisements. The first order of business is to “delaminate” these by hosing them down and peeling them apart. Here they are stretched out to dry.Image
