Tatiana Potts – Dark Chocolate


© 2018
edition of 7
dimensions in inches :11 x 16 x 16


This book contains gestural drawings of my daughter and her music teacher at her flute lessons. I was exploring the repetition of act of playing flute and practicing over and over in order to improve. This relates to my practice of sketching more and more to improve. The text that is included in book are the notes taken down during lesson where her teacher would use food analogy to describe her playing and tone. I sketched into my sketchbook and then printed them with photo lithography process and folded/cut pages to introduce dimension.
