EASTHAMPTON ROTATING ART BOOK PROJECT
The Easthampton Rotating Art Book Project was an year-long series led by Easthampton artist Lei Fay. Twelve artists initiated a book and defined its theme. The book was then passed on to the next artist to add a page design addressing the theme in a medium of their choosing. The project resulted in 12 artists books completed by this collective of artists across a year. The project offered the opportunity to experiment with mediums, including printmaking, colored pencils, ink drawing, and collage (featured below).
Crafted in the basement studio of Teachers College Columbia University while studying for my master's in arts administration, these prints were experiments with color, pattern, and image adaptation/alteration. I was lucky enough to complete this work under the guidance of artist and teacher Mahbobe Ghods.
These adaptations on simple, widely known patterns were utilized to create home textiles in acrylic and wool.
Geometric shapes add so much great texture and make the most of simple color combinations.
