A month later, I invented an interior structure with a drawer, learned illustrator and found Steve at Triumph CNC to help me build it. Now it’s the exciting time to see the book become a reality.
In the meantime, join me Saturday in Carlsbad for the opening of Reimagined: The Artist’s Book.
In March, catch “Voyages, en Train” in the exhibition Boundless, at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
And finally, if you’re in Switzerland stop by Artphilein Library and see Tempus Fugit.
Reimagined: The Artist’s Book
Feb. 26 – May 14, 2022
Come meet me at the opening (Feb 26 from 5 to 7 pm) of this thought provoking exhibition where we reinvent how to tell stories.
William D. Cannon Art Gallery Carlsbad City Library complex

What happens when the worlds of art and books intersect? The resulting spectrum ranges from innovative designed books to unique and beautifully sculpted artist books. Imagine an artist looking at the very concept of printed material, such as a book, and seeing the raw material for a new and exciting work of art. The objects in this exhibition interpret the concept of the book, exploring altering book structures into sculpture or sculptural objects whose only reference to book-ness might be the inclusion of words. The creative force of the featured artists is demonstrated by their ingenuity in reimagining book forms, decorating in new ways and using unconventional materials.
Boundless, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art
March 4 – June 22, 2022
Boundless celebrates the visionary ideals of the artist’s book which often challenge, in the best of ways, our preconceived notions of what a book can be. Boundless explores the vast field of artist’s books, but also the thinking of book artists. Each work reveals the mapping and laying bare of uncomfortable, surprising, or unexplored terrain.
Artphilein De Petri Foundation
Tempus Fugit has joined the Artphilein Library in Lugano, Switzerland.
The organization has also a Choisi Bookshop specialized in contemporary artists’ books, photo-books, self-publishing and independent publishers.
Don’t miss this wonderful eclectic collection if you visit Switzerland!
I give zoom presentations on creativity and how the concept and execution evolved into the creation of 3 of my artist books. If you are interested to have me talk to your students, collectors, members, friends feel free to contact me (link to my email).
