The book form gives the visual artist a broad platform to explore important themes and visual ideas. The Artist Books in this exhibition are composed of text accompanied by drawings, collages or prints, including etchings, drypoints, and direct transfer monoprints. The relationship of text to image can be uncertain. In some books, the text may be suggested by the artwork. In others, the images are imaginative renderings of existing text.
Marc Shanker will discuss his creative process during a live conversation on June 29 at 5pm.
