New marbled books
I took a month off work to marble fresh canvas for our forthcoming show, and these are some of the them.
The first detail is a development of my “feeding frenzy” pattern. Naturally not every print have the beasts in them, no matter how much you try. Sometimes they just leap out like in this one.
To make sure that you can use the print as a book cover, it has to be a good deal larger than the front page, and the crucial images have to be placed accordingly. Wastage is considerable.
The next spread is rather personal, with my junk “Kehaar” prominently displayed.
I can see several potencial beasts in the next “compass” canvas, but I left them dormant.
I do not want to bore you with details, once you’ve seen a dozen marbled books, any more become a blur. Next frame captures nine more books, with colourful “vata” pattern, and my favourite, “supraintelligent manifestation of colour blue”. Most of the text blocks are made from redundant sea charts.
All up there will be about twenty canvas covered marbled books in the show, and half a dozen fancy timber covered with marbled spines.
