since i have to work cyclically lately between different mediums, sometimes i can’t decide if i want to create an assemblage or a book. they are, after all, the two things i’m most passionate about creating (though i’m still overly obsessed with the idea of creating a portrait i don’t hate). so this time i decided to create both in unison… a book inside an assemblage. it’s funny how i say that as if i’ve never done that before. i’m totally laughing right now. this is probably my forty-third assemblage with a book in it.
meet the second gal in my doll box series (the first, “exhibition of self” can be found in seth apter’s book “the pulse of mixed media” where i was one of the featured artists). i fell instantly in love with that little face of hers and had to create something special. at least i feel she’s special. ❤
like most people, she has her secrets; some are kept in the little drawer just above her heart, and others can be kept in the book within her belly. the drawer is actually not empty. can you guess what’s inside?
the book is made with bones upon the spine and a metal and shark tooth closure i fashioned out of miscellaneous found objects.
what did you create today?
