I make sculptural books from clothing and other found objects. Girdles, bustiers, brassieres, gloves, aprons, children’s' clothes-are my means of containment. Inside these stiffened, shaped, embellished enclosures, I conceal books and other objects that document my exploration of feminine, social, and spiritual issues.
Hi Miriam. I guess I am slow- did not look at this page for awhile. I saw you book, and wnt to the opening. It is a very nice show! Lots of old friends in thebooks, and also saw lots of locals I had not seen for awhile. I was talking to an artist up here, and she thought it was not a very good shwo since the books werent very well made, or something like that. I thought she was nuts!... Laura
How is life in artist-book world? I am still doing books, and other work, but I have taken time out to do a PhD! Madness. I hope you are well and your books are multiplying. Love from Dianne in Adelaide.
Oy, I haven't even gotten all my stuff up on Facebook and Flickr! But this place does feel more cozy, always liked the warm feeling of the book world. Glad you're going Friday, the cold has gotten me hibernating again the last couple of days, looking forward to re-surfacing tomorrow! I can be there whenever you want, just let me know.
The exhibition presents two connected bodies of material: a survey of artists’ books by Australian painter, sculptor and bookmaker Robert Jacks (1942-2014), and an extensive selection of publications drawn from Jacks’ own collection, many of which were purchased from Printed Matter in the early years of the organization.
