Artists Book, 1993
This book is a celebration of the warmth of the copper sheet l used to create this assemblage of glowing, reflective, copper pages.
The material gives the work a lush and seductive quality, like the inside of a ripe fruit.
This book feels like a joyous shout; loud with energy but hushed and silent, without any words.
The page-panels, connected with fragile wire hinges and beads open to reveal an element of lead and gold leaf.
