About

I find books challenging...

...and what if I told you that I barely passed most of my high school English classes?

This is true. I blame the writing aspect; a daunting task each time I'm forced to put down in words, an essay, my own biography, or my artist's intent with project installation descriptions. Some of us are just meant to be readers! And here I am, engrossed in a world of books with stories I find interesting or fantastic illustrations to appreciate and hope you might think the same.

I have always been involved in the arts and I like books as an artist's material as well. I'm constantly exploring origami techniques to find shapes by folding entire books or just individual pages. I find it funny to produce an installation of paper cogs that I have made with Shakespeare's plays and Harlequin romance novels. The story lines are very similar: romance, tragedy, love and/or death, then curtain!

Enjoy a book!

Cheers,
Benjamin

ps, If I were a contestant on Jeopardy, my 7 dream categories would be:

Book Jackets
Cava, Champagne or Prosecco?
CBC or BBC?
Embroideries
Falling on Ice
Folding Paper
Noodles
