A Novel Idea

I have been invited to create a piece for A Novel Idea, an altered book exhibition, showing at Hampden Gallery, UMass, Amherst. The show will run through Dec. 11, 2011 - Feb. 19, 2012.

I am pretty excited by the ideas I am exploring for the piece I will create. I will post the opening or closing reception dates when they are available.

A Novel Idea

Electronic devices like the Nook and the Kindle have already captured huge swatches of the reading public’s loyalty. Quick. Before it’s too late, this group of painters, sculptors, writers, film-makers, printers, and all-round lovers of the printed page, boldly bend, fold, and mutilate traditional books until all that remains are discrete art objects. These one of a kind altered works stand witness to the rapid evolution of the book as we know it.

No comments:

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
