Seeing Through

Oregon: Anne Greenwood, 2019. Number 2 of an edition of twelve unalike books made in collaboration; prompted by Kit’s poem, ‘In the Time it Takes’ and our shared obsession with textiles. Signed by the book artist and the poet. The materials are hand-dyed silk thread, muslin with machine stitched text, walnut ink, scorched crinoline and Abaca paper made by Helen Hiebert. Thanks to our friends in Corvallis, Oregon who joined us for an evening of stitching, scorching, and mending the pages of these books. Anne Greenwood Kit Stafford "(from the colophon). The book indeed incorporates scorching, with several hot iron images on the bi-fold cover and on a separate insert. The poem is stitched in brown threads on a cloth that may be unfolded when the covers are opened. Kit Stafford is a poet and artist from Sisters, Oregon. She is the daughter of William Stafford the poet and pacifist, who served as the Poet Laureate of Oregon from 1985 to 1990. Anne Greenwood is a well-known artist who has exhibited widely and whose works can be found in museum and library collections around the country. Anne’s artwork explores an interest in folk art and speaks of her kinship with the natural world and how this influences her connection to daily life. In 2002, Anne set up a textiles studio integrating handwork, book arts, and textiles into an interdisciplinary practice. An inventive production that pays homage to the artists' devotion to textile arts. In fine condition. ARTISTSB/092719. Fine.
