Soul Book, Anonymous I

Redwood City, CA: Judith of Serebrin Books & Prints, 2015. Unique artist's book. Well-known artist Judith Serebrin received a master's degree in fine arts from the University of Utah in 1990 and has been making limited edition and unique books since then. Her work can be found in public and private collections in the United States and abroad. She states: "All my life I have observed, listened and looked at the world around me and have tried to make sense of it. I am concerned with issues of social justice, and liberation. Art for me is a way to learn about the world and to challenge oppressive mores, to make interesting connections that I can share with others. I hope to make others think as well, to grin, to perhaps gain insight and to spark new thoughts. Interrelations between people, animals and the planet are explored in my work--I hope in ways that are accessible. Using "book arts" as a format is part of that for me as you can have an intimate experience holding a book and looking through it." She often creates her artists' books by combining ceramic structures with mixed-media paper books for striking effect. She says of this work: "This is part of a series of porcelain figures called “Soul Books.” The works symbolize the value and importance of the life and souls of animals and humans. Figures with books in them represent a symbolic and tactile way of being able to reach into someone’s soul without embarrassment, censorship, or fear. The sculptural figure is made of stained porcelain and measures 8.25 x 2 x 2 inches. The book has monotypes on paper with a binding of exposed link and kettle stitches and measures 7/8 x 1 3/8 x 1/2 inches. In fine condition. ARTISTSB/071921. Fine.
