page 4

I do love unveiling this work. On page four if you look closely you will see
that I am using embossing and creating a prime number sequence. The 
spacing of the numbers corresponds to the numbers missing in the
math problem. Also, peaking out of the gutter is a glimpse of a work to 
appear on a later page. I think I am enamored with with this art format
because it is touch, feel and even smell. It's not under glass; instead it's
meant to be enjoyed as an art object that one can hold, handle and enjoy
without the intrusion of a frame and glass. A little like mail art. I've been 
working on version two and three this week and may take the artist way
and throw something else in the mix.

Sarah- I'm so glad you are following this series! I almost missed your response to page 2. I've been stretching with this project. In the art world there is always another technique to master. The more we master, the greater number of arrows in our quiver.

Very interesting project, Bill. I would like to hold this in my hands to appreciate the tactile qualities and subtleties of it. I'll be following along as you post more pages.

It seems like this art is infatuating to you and I am so glad to see the stages it brings. It is very sensual.

Thanks for sharing and the best..

Mineke - are you back from Turkey? Nice to hear from you. You are right that with an artist book the tactile is what separates this art form from some others. Please Touch!
Gwen-Thank you for commenting- it is a new infatuation- I confess every-time I learn a new art making process I fall in love all over again. Must be a mid life crisis.
