About the Old Ones

The Old Ones... Chi. Qi. The essence of story-telling. The core of all art. Breath. The source of resonance with our ancient origins. I have aspirations for the medium of artists books. I want artists books which have the range, subtlety, depth of meaning of a Cezanne, a Rothko, Faulkner, Beethoven. Big art. Big aspirations. Anyone who tries to go there is likely to fail. What's the alternative? Trinkets. I don't want to make trinkets. I want to be out looking for the Old Ones. If I make two…

The Arrow, craft, big and little art, and so forth

Recently on my other blog (The Arrow) I've been posting a series of remarks on those rules of thumb given to young writers -- write what you know, show don't tell, that sort of thing -- under the series title "Shibboleths for Writers". Most of this has little to do with artists books. The current one, however, may be more relevant.…

During a stimulating and successful day at ArtBookArt (HOFS), I was asked who I thought my 'influences' were.  

I found myself at quite a loss because I have moved so far from any influences I might have felt to start with, if I ever did.  There is undoubtedly a whisper of Ed Rucha about my postcard books and I could site a number of obvious choices re using 'found objects', but, when it comes down to basics, they are all 'accessories after the fact'!  I make books because I have…

Artist's Books to Raise Funds for Sexual Assault Survivor Resources

Hi Everyone,

I'm at Women's Studio Workshop this month printing the first in a set of three letterpress and digitally printed artist's books to raise funds for Rape Crisis Centers. The goal of the project is to create an archive of survivor accounts, to raise awareness as well as serve for a platform for discussion, and to raise funds through sales and donations to the project. I've launched an…

Essay : Takers Economy : An Inquiry into Illegal File Sharing

I've been nearly completely inactive in my social networks since mid-July or so. Not that I wouldn't have liked to participate, but I have been engrossed in the redaction of the above essay.

When I tackled the project, I thought it would take a few weeks at most, and that I would be able…

Book arts on my Art blog ArtSmartTalk

Another book related post on my ArtSmartTalk blog - this time about the Shahnama, the ancient Persian epic bristling with brave Kings, heroic deeds, fierce demons, and mythic battles. The focus is on a show in New York at the Asia Society, where an edition from the 14th century is on display - recently unbound, conserved, and shown as a whole in the U.S. for the first time. The marvels of Persian illustration are on full display - magnificent craftsmanship, tiny delicate renderings of…

What is it about the Book?

Recently with a group of students I discussed; what is it that makes the book so enduring and enticing as a medium of expression? It took a while for them to understand the question. For the college age student is more involved with their computer than probably any other medium, even art students. I kept at it though... what is this thing, this object that has so changed the entire direction of humanity?

Finally it started to come. The book as an object, a technology, a work…

New Art Museum in Tasmania to include massive Kiefer book work

This article about David Walsh's new private art museum that is under construction in Hobart may confront a number of people but it also sounds pretty exciting as well. I particularly noticed this paragraph:

"Anselm Kiefer’s monumental Sternenfall/­Shevirath ha Kelim, 2007, a haunting installation of lead books on steel shelves with broken glass, which was first shown at the Grand Palais in…
