Pulp Redux Progress


The update on my altered book "Roots.. beneath the layers"
for the Pulp Redux collaboration.
My book is getting thicker...



Front inside cover and first page:





 On the left is a poem by Stanley Kunitz called "The Layers"
and on the right a photograph of my grandmother as a child.
The poem discusses the journey of life and how our
identites change past and future.
The second half of the poem will be on the 
inside back cover of the book.



This page is a fabric and fiber art piece. The five spears of turquoise
represent the five collaborators in this project. Friendship is one
symbolism of turquoise. In an organic sense,
the spears represent "layers" which
by definition are stems that are covered with soil for rooting.



For more details about the project

The Layers is a favorite poem - so poignant. It fits well with your rich book. I wish I could hold it and turn the pages.

Lisa - see my comments on your Pulp Redux post. I just want to stage dive your page! Let me at it! It looks so soft and pillowy I reckon my landing would be the nicest thing in the world...

You are truly an amazing artist, Lisa....
