A couple of my art pieces were in a traveling exhibit in Taiwan and the US. After the fact, they are now doing an illustrated catalog of the exhibit. I wanted to share what I'm submitting for the catalog:
I've been making my staple collages for
about 15 years now. I'm struck with the beauty in what we throw away.
I used the same stapler in the 1950s in my father's store to recycle
hosiery boxes into Christmas handkerchief boxes. Sue Eisler gave
me permission to use the stapler for art making. She staples
with a beautiful and vigorous reckless abandon, while mine is a more
controlled and functional means of attaching one layer to another.
In these particular collages I
incorporated a brochure that Sheow Hwey gave me of the beautiful
Taiwanese dancers who, though physically handicapped, showed us all
that our only path is to work with what we have.
