what is it about printed matter
October 3, 2009 § Leave a comment
as i try to settle into my new studio and to a new body of work i am still puzzled by my attraction to books and magazines. i am looking back at work and at statements to get me jump started. magazines and books are a source of inspiration, knowledge, amusement and escape for me. neatly packaged and succinctly organized, they have the power to seduce, influence, manipulate, distress, and thrill me. i have noticed how they shape my perceptions of the world, my surroundings and myself, particularly in those things pertaining to truth and beauty. these drawings are my way of acknowledging and celebrating this; of trying to understand the hold magazines have over me, and to make sense of their power.
