www.angelalorenzartistsbooks.comMany years ago WSW published one of Angela’s artists’ books, Lyatext. It’s long out of print, but like all of her work, the book is a perfect example of how the physical material of the piece can add to the meaning. She is not often in the U.S., so we are thrilled to be able to offer this class.
July 22–26, 2013
This course is designed to set the wheels of conceptual thinking in motion. You will explore how text, materials, process and structure relate to the content of a piece, be it artist’s book or another genre. The instructor will use her own work and historical examples, including ancient art and literature, to convey the possibilities of merging content with form. Participants will be encouraged to experiment with low-tech processes such as rubber stamping, dyeing, potato prints, resist, rubbings, embossing, folding and sewing to complete the two assignments: a group alphabet piece of single letters on a 6″x6″ support, and a mock-up of a 3-D structure.
