Opera Verbis: Artist Book Exhibition (Denver, CO)

Delighted to have one of my recent artist’s books selected for the Opera Verbis exhibition in Denver, Colorado.

A Clean Sheet of Parchment (2020), variable-edition artist’s book (4.5 in x 3 in x 0.125 in.)

This simple, single-sheet book uses stark contrasts of white ink on black paper and the bold marks of the ruling pen and with quieter voice of pointed pen to focus on a fragment of the larger Henry Martin quote explored in Tabula Rasa (2018) and Tabula Rasa (2020). “Perhaps someday, humanity can start afresh, a new world, a tabula rasa, when all humanity becomes a clean sheet of parchment . . . .”

Opera Verbis will be on view in the Gates Reading Room Gallery, Denver Public Library, Central Branch, Denver, Colorado, July – December 2020.

The “schedule an appointment with me” link in my ResearchGuides and email sig files point to this landing page: http://libcal.baylor.edu/appointment/615

I love this tool because it sends a confirmation to the person scheduling an appointment,as well as a reminder, and convenient way to cancel and release the appointment if needed.

wonderful interview with an artist and letterpress printer

One of my favorite quotes from this interview:

“One does not master skills. Skills allow one to interpret the world. There is an energy that flows throughout life, and skills help you understand that energy. So, I have no desire to master anything. I wish to experience it with wonder.” -Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr.
