Book #18: Linking HeArt & Life

2.2012, 5 1/2” x 4 1/2”, 24 images, mixed media: computer/collage/paint 12 pages.

This book is ‘built’ upon a pamphlet produced by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in the year 2000. It chronicled their recent exhibitions and activities. I changed the title from Linking Art & Life to Linking HeArt & Life with the flick of a wrist. This book/booklet is a kind of embroidery. Each page is scanned into my flatbed scanner, then push-pulled, moved around, re-scaled and otherwise ambushed. The works of other artists are added or certain of their elements. Even I, as a child, make an appearance with the addition of a blue cat head and the subtraction of my own.
