Books: Our Ever Changing World

*Art is passion exposed.

 

A series of books that document space/ time/ location/ gravitational pull. This series “Through the Eyes of Artists” reflect interaction with and about artists and is intended to answer questions I’ve carried around with me for awhile. All having to do with the art world and the who, what, why, how, when of the miracle of artists.

A Series of Books about Artists… that promote Artists as vehicles of Change.

Artist Art & Story Books and entry new website as of 2017

The project originated with my desire to create an installation piece, a “something” that the meaning of furthers the magic I feel about artists. I thought long and hard, came up with many different ideas of how to fill a space up but everything I did was about me, my art and my story…and I didn’t feel a satisfaction inside. THEN, I realized that I am a book designer, that is what I do for my living that allows me to create art. PERFECT! was the word I heard.

And the process began, the gathering of the whats to be done…and the how what I create will further the magic of Art and Artists…Any further books will be 5.5 x 8.5 and each will have writing that will answer different questions… at this time,  based on my crowd dynamic concept producing at least one book a year.

My intention is for the stories the artists share, will create a paradigm shift in those who read about them and learn about the variety of feelings, visionary insights, art process, mediums, personal histories and more that each artist brings to the world, one piece of art at a time.

With each page, each artist takes you to another place of question and seeing the importance of art and their sharing about in the art they create.

I hope you’ll join me and a few of the artists as we share the project with you.

 

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.

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
