Altered Book Round Robin

Nine Artists from Ledbury participating in an Altered Book Round Robin, to be completed by September 2011 in time for exhibition at Hereford City gallery h’Art Week (September 11-19th) The Nine artists each choose a discarded book to be worked on – collaged, painted, etc.   for a month before passing on to the next contributor.

Molly Rozier’s Book The Illustrated Book of Insects by Derek Whitely, illustrated by Joyce Bee.

The coloured plates were well illustrated and I was struck by the way that creatures are  necessarily depicted as separate specimens in this kind of book. Therefore, in  my section I added no paint or  other material, but cut into the images trying to interweave and make connections, in order to illustrate the interdependence of these creatures.
