book art objects: take a vintage hardcover book (even better –– a book found or rescued), and in this case, tie it shut with heavy twine, prime it and paint it and collage it and seal it all with varnish, reinventing it along the way
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)
5 1/2 x 8 1/4 x 3/4 inches
the varnish on this is as smooth as glass; this art is meant to be picked up and handled
“That’s the place to get to—nowhere. One wants to wander away from the world’s somewheres, into our own nowhere.”
~ D.H. Lawrence, Women in Love
“I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits.”
~ Ludwig van Beethoven
“Wandering between two worlds, one dead,/ The other powerless to be born.”
~ Matthew Arnold
