I meant to post about this sooner but time got away from me. I have some prints available at art.com! The pieces for sale are a part of my ‘painting on photo’ series. The books I use in these works are saved from thrift shops, the trash, or from dusty bookstores. The paintings give the buried pages of forgotten books a chance to be seen again. I’ve always been interested in salvaging unwanted items so this series is really close to my heart in many ways.
I do love how these paintings look in the actual books so it’s a shame that I have to tear them out in the end. It’s such an interesting experience to flip through an educational book and to find something like a funky rainbow snake slithering down a hill. I wish more people could see that side of these pieces. Hopefully I’ll be able to figure something out in the future.
