House of Lost Things. [book art].

Portland, ME: 2002. Unique Work. In the artist's words: "One of two small house-shaped books address a similar theme, that of what gets lost through the years. The photographs are from thrift and antique stores, images of people that no one now remembers." In a period where a fair bit of "book art" is glib, Cawley's work is subtle and engaging. Where much is to be seen once, enjoyed and forgotten, Cawley's begs "rereading", as with each rereading one is able to trick out another nuance...another wee tale. Cawley is emerging as a fresh and sophisticated voice in American book arts. Materials: Tracing paper, photocopy transfer, embroidery, cast paper covers, acrylic paint and matte medium. Burgundy paper boards. 32mo. Item #4461

Price: $750.00
