Artist’s Books

HOME, 2020 is a foldable artist’s book/installation that resonates with the global narratives of woman, earth, pandemic and loss of home. Materials include hemp, thread, India ink on altered Spanish Bible pages. The words woman/mujer, earth/tierra, hunger/hambre, plague/pestilencia, mortality/mortandad, and verses of ruin and devastation on earth/asolados has been left unredacted. The act of altering the bible suggests dichotomies of sacred and profane, East and West, lightness and weight, creating and erasing.  It is also a metaphor for ephemerality, transmutation and purification, while the mindful process is an antidote for uncertainty and a constant sense of dislocation.
