dreaming about play… is the third book in a series exploring childhood memory and emotion. Each time I create a piece about my childhood, it becomes an opportunity for me to look at it from a different perspective – to reframe my experience in a new and different way. I get to re-visit, revise, and re-tell a slightly different story. In this book the repetition of images, the circles, and the subdued palette, give the playscapes a dreamlike quality, a looking-back feel, where memory is imperfect and substitutes the familiar when it cannot recall the specific.
you can see dreaming about play… at The Art of the Book at Donna Seager Gallery in San Rafael, CA. The show opens March 18th and runs through April 30th. The Artists’ Reception is Saturday, March 26th 6-8pm.
