Accumulating Palimpsest

Thoughts on Book Arts from someone who knows nothing about them.

"Life Go On," one of the four themes Thornton Dial categorizes his drawings as. This picture comes from the "Thoughts on Paper" exhibit that was at UNC Chapel Hill’s Ackland Art Museum Spring/Summer 2012. 

Which brings me to do a project I’d like to attempt: taking a reproduction (or, hey, doing a reproduction) of one of these “thoughts on paper” drawings, but as a collage, then separating out each layer based on color/texture, and creating a tunnel book…effectively translating the two-dimensional piece into a collage of assembled materials, which is Mr. Dial’s more well-known medium anyway. 

The NC Art Blog’s post on the exhibit and event is more insightful…
