new work and end of year sale!

Swing by my studio tonight during Third Friday (6-9 pm | studio 103 | 807 E Main St | Durham, NC) to check out more additions to my "By Its Cover" series.  

 

For tonight only, these 6 new works will be on sale for $200 each, with 12% of the proceeds going to a local charity.   

 

Hope to see you there!

The last few centuries have seen an incredible transformation in the interpretation and usage of the book: from prized possession, to transmitter of information, to art object, to a bulky item often set aside in favor of a digital equivalent.  In this body of work, I have dismantled and reconfigured books to reflect on the past, present and future history of the written word and its relationship to culture, individuals and society as a whole.
