I am planning some slightly different work to my usual output, as the local library service in Bath is organising an exhibition and competition. To enter you simply choose one of the books they are discarding and transform it or alter it in some way. I am currently playing around with the idea of the double meaning of the word “leaves”, which could refer to the green things that grow on trees or the pages in a book. Over the last couple of days I have been thinking about layering and cutting pages, and these are two designs.
The first is a line drawing on a page/leaf from a novel, and the second is a photocopy of this on cartridge paper, with the addition of tome using cross-hatched lines.
I haven’t quite decided what to do with the background yet. I’ll keep you posted.
