Undercurrent (whisper), stab bound book, 15.5 x 7.5 inches, 14 pages, unique, 2019, $1,500

Hand-pulled monotypes printed on Rives BFK—some are stitched with cotton thread. The text was written by the artist and transfer-drawn onto kitakata; gampi was hand-stitched with silk thread. 

Repeated text: The under-breath whisper that voice always lodged stuck in her head stuck between her teeth imagines plans an escape past refuse-to-listen ears on turned-away heads of gaping mouths mouths full of words words that cannot hear her murmurs of delight of ordinary yes and yes.

 

 

Unheard, unbound book, 9 x 11 inches, 11 pages in a handmade portfolio, unique, 2019, $1,800

The monotypes were hand-pulled and printed on Zerkall Litho. The text was written by the artist and transfer-drawn onto gampi. 

 

 

Text: As anxious leaves swoon – and the foggy view tastes sweet – she walks up a mountain – (then) sits like a lady – to keep her words to herself
