Handmade artist books from the Test Papers series

Handmade artist books from the Test Papers series

I use works on paper to playfully invite serious conversations. My most recent project was a series of handmade artist books which respectfully collect discarded drawings.

They can be approached on their playful level, which is that of a mass of careless marks.  Upon closer examination, however, the drawings have significant charm and analytical potential.  As explained in my artist statement, there are surprising trends in what folks draw or write when unprompted or self-conscious.
