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.
