Another homage to the intimate scale of the book, this mixed media drawing on Japanese paper is embroidered with two delicate blues on facing pages mounted on lightly-stained used teabags that have been adhered to the paper. Tiny blue squares form a couple of ambiguous shapes that allude to architecture, or perhaps cellular forms. The hand embroidery is offset by a collaged bit of floral paper that nearly disappears, leaving a contrasting blue. The allusion to the book page is furthered by the pamphlet stitch running down the gutter, as if this fragment had been torn from some secret treasure!

Artwork measures approximately 5 1/2 x 8 1/2", unframed. Work is mounted on a backing of bristol paper to give it a bit of stability...ready for you to frame as you desire!

Thanks for browsing...enjoy!
