Art and Literacy Opening Reception, Solo Show

In “Art and Literacy” I salute authors’ ability to create ideas, stories, worlds, and movements from nothing.  I create as much of these paintings out of authors’ chosen medium - paper and ink.

I begin with a 2-part epoxy resin, then shape, burn, and place pages to bring classics to life.  Heat is applied with a blowtorch to eliminate bubbles, it is left to cure, and another layer is applied - until the piece is declared finished.

The 3D effects achievable through the use of epoxy are undoubtedly the medium’s biggest asset, and in each case, the actual book celebrated is used to make the whole piece. 

I encourage viewers of all ages to approach the artwork, touch it, and read visible words (readable pages are deliberately chosen). I hope that those who interact with my artwork walk away with an increased desire to expand their minds through reading, as well as a greater understanding that without a creative mind, none of these works could be created or comprehended.
