The Way It Is


The Way It Is, 2009. Edition of 50.

Threads are a frequent feature in my work, sometimes functioning as sculptural elements, sometimes embedded in sheets of paper or used to stitch or tie paper components together, and often creating metaphors for the physical, emotional and spiritual connections between people. Handmade abaca paper with embedded string drawing, letterpress printing by Sandy Tilcock, Lone Goose Press, poem by William Stafford.
