last stand at the castle of parasites
book art objects: take a vintage book (originally this was a pocket French-English dictionary), varnish it shut, prime it and paint it and collage it (with a paperback cover from Daphne du Maurier's The Parasites, then with a wax paper print of a Ukiyo-e samurai) and seal it all with varnish once more (the surface is smooth and glassy to the touch)
now: the book has been repurposed into an art object, with the original subject matter displaced; this is part of what makes it new and original, and why it deserves an invented title
art object / book sculpture –– intended as a home decor accent or touch; an affordable, easily transportable means of redecorating
to sit on a coffee table or mantle or bookshelf (this is the kind of art that travels with you, even to your cubicle at work)
2 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 1/2 inches
the finish on this is as smooth as glass; this art is meant to be picked up and handled
All that remains
Of soldiers' dreams
― Matsuo Bashō
A dreamer, I walked enchanted, and nothing held me back.
― Daphne du Maurier
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
–– e. e. cummings
