MARCH GUEST ARTIST ABBIE READ
In response to several current external forces I have been working on intimate artist books. Each is a pocket sized accordion book, each page 4 inches by 3 inches. This size has awarded me the freedom to work quickly, on paper, with much exploration into both technique and search for a visual language that feels like a return to my own painter’s past. Using gouache, markers, collage, I create then conceal pattern, form, mark making to layer content. The content is referential rather than explicit, and touches on the natural world and its many mysterious processes and life forms.
