m(other) love

Just finished this piece – ”m(other) love – an artists’ books collaboration with Bridgette Guerzon Mills.

Early this autumn we decided to create two books on the subject of LOVE for the 6th International Artists’ Books Triennial, Vilnius 2012 

This book was founded by Bridgette. It has a delicate accordion-like structure and a rich and tactile surface made of one soft sheet of of paper, with fabric and pieces of old handkerchiefs added and hold together by a lot of hand stitching and layers of encaustic.

As the titel indicates love can be a doublesided issue. A key to understand what Bridgette is aiming at is this quote by Gold Meir:

“At work, you think of the children you’ve left at home. At home, you think of the work you’ve left unfinished. Such a struggle is unleashed within yourself, your heart is rent.”

I think every mother/ parent totally knows the situation.

My kids are grown up now, but hey, I remember the feeling!

  1. The work that you have done on these pages is beautiful and rich and subtle at the same time. I love both of your work, and it is fascinating to see it together and overlapping. Thank you so much and congratulations on the project’s completion.

    What a gorgeous piece! Light and fragile, yet so dense at the same time. Well done!
