What’s hidden, what’s revealed

A true/imaginary story (Vault Piece No. 2, uncovered in the Great Office Cleanup of 2014) was the first piece I did on a page from a book.


I was playing around with acrylic paints, polymer image transfer, embroidery, and drawing (as always), and discovered my interest in playing with meaning by covering most of the words on the page and selecting a few to remain. (Austin Kleon does a lot of this. You should check him out.)

They’re pretty far removed from whatever the page used to say. I liked letting the new phrases influence what I drew.
