Airborn: an artist’s book

Inspired by the artist’s visit to China and Japan, Airborn responds to traditional forms in personal ways. A collaboration with poet Melinda Kennedy, text and imagery lyrically describe the five elements of our world. Each print represents an element, and the book is organized to visually take flight, progressing from the earth to the air. Directions by sculptor/kit artist Tal Streeter describe how to string and fly the five pages/kites.

FROM THE BOOKSTORE:

  • Swans, the ice she said

    Swans the Ice She Said was inspired by Ernest Shackleton’s voyage to the South Pole and the Chinese notion of the three perfections in art combining poetry, painting and calligraphy.
