Description

About this piece:
The visual experience in this artist’s book manifests in the unrolling of the scroll where the text appears word by word and the woodcut image is revealed. The piece speaks to the inherent infusion of our sleeping dreams upon our waking lives. The multiple color woodblock image is printed from one block. With each press run a different color was printed and the block was shifted. The text was also carved in wood and printed. The text was printed on a typewriter, enlarged and transferred to the block for carving.

A quote from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte:

I’ve dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas: they’ve gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
