“Handmade Paper”

The artist suggests new ways to consider what we hold precious. The forms of nature and natural elements are “transfered” to book objects and photographic elements. The arieal land forms are printed on handformed paper that was once the forest of that land. The “books” are also built from the remnents of those woods. The work transgresses the modernist desire to depict in a harsh or cold environment and instead makes real the nature of objects.
