About the artist:
Lives and works in London, United Kingdom.
Yael David-Cohen works in three separate but related areas: fibre art/painting, artists’ books, and printmaking. Her work in the medium of artists’ books is not illustration or visualization of a narrative but more an emotional response to the writing or type of book. They include responses to Georges Perec’s novel Les Choses as well as works based on the Biblical books of Jonah, Ruth, Esther and Ecclesiastes; more recent books comprise old carte de visite albums and collections of etchings representing motion and change using photographs with drawing, etching, and sometimes fabric.
