Our Ever Changing World: Through the  Eyes of Artists: “What Are You Saving From Extinction?”

Layout 1Book One: (8.5 x 11 color) covers my thinking that artists “save” something from being forgotten. I thought this focus would be something everyone can relate to in today’s world of forever changing views, new technology, and global change. I noticed that artists work to bring something that is hidden into light. That their way of seeing our world opens us to new ways of being and thinking. Different perspectives help to bring about change.

Our Ever Changing World: Through the  Eyes of Artists: “Couples and Collaboration.”

Layout 1Book Two:  (8.5 x 11 color) Spotlights couples and the way they collaborate. Is if just as a couple or as artists too? And how does this type of relationship function and affect their lives. When I hung the show I was very pleased to see how each couple complimented each other not only in being a couple but in the art they created.

cvrBook Four:  (5.5 x 8.5 black and white) Spotlights Southern California Artists their art and story. The focus of the book was to write a story, 500 to 1,000 words long and to share a life experience NOT related to or mention art in any way. As artists it seems we are always talking to and about our lives as artists. My intention was to help move the focus more to the history of the artist as a combination o f life experiences. We are more than our art… we are our story.

Our Ever Changing World: Through the  Eyes of Artists: Idle Chatter: What’s in Your Cupboard/Shelf/Drawer?

Book Five:  (5.5 x 8.5 black and white)  California Artists their art and story. The focus of the book was to write a story, 500 to 1,000 words long and to share a story. This book focus was on how assemblage art comes in many forms, and I noticed that we all do it to a certain extent…assemblage that is. Our cupboards, shelves, drawers are all expressions of our ability to hunt and gather and the results of what that looks like differs in form for men and women
