She made a book mounted to a wood panel so it would hang on the wall.
Each page has a line of text in which the words are all erased except the word
"should" and the last page has the reverse.
She left a shadow of the text, however, so you can read it if you like.
Very nice concept and reveal/conceal possibilities!
The book, with its shadows, appears to have wings.
The connection between the chair paintings?
Folding and unfolding.
The first book has a series of tiny aquatints (etchings).
She's cut windows in the pages so they are framed nicely.
I believe the text is done with a transfer pen.
Both books are circle accordions with hard covers.
"candle / doorknob / dirty spoon / floorboard"
"Concealed in chasms / fairy fire glows"
She told me she used her bookmaking skills to build these houses out of
book board. More tiny etchings on the walls.
The second book has only words
Simple, effective, and very cleanly done.
"I feel an altered reality / a shift"
Sami placed variations of these iridescent forms on the floor around the gallery.
They appeared in her works as well, such as on the cover of the second book.
I'm not exactly sure, but I think this is the creative spirit pool
or the "fairy fire" she mentions.
CONGRATULATIONS, LUCY AND SAMI!
