New York: Béatrice Coron, n.d. Number 2 of 3 copies. Coron and her collaborator the Canadian poet Charles Gill have created an inventive artist's book with Gill's evocative poem on gold seekers illustrated with Coron's intricate papercuts that show the gold hunters in their often desperate attempts to find gold. Coron describes her book work: "For the last 20 years, I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. I have been fascinated by the relation of people to their space and the sense of belonging. Using papercutting where everything is cut from a single piece of Tyvek, the profusion of individual stories makes a coherent whole world." [From her website]. This work is done from hand-cut brown Cave paper with gold leaf appliqué. The text of the poem is printed on four white labels affixed to the bottom margins of the folded pages. Housed in a folder covered with brown textured paper with a paper title label. In fine condition. Measures 6 xx 22 inches when unfolded. ARTB/090821. Fine.
