About this piece:
Northwoods Fanfare is a sculptural book form I recently learned from artist, Bhavna Mehta. Her garden fan accordion workshop got me thinking of all the possibilities with this basic structure. This version is built with images I drew and hand cut of deer, bear, birches, pines, berries, leaves, and a rogue coyote. Fanning the book out, with covers flat on a surface, reveals a fanfare of north woods iconic images.
