Ann Laser and Patricia Pierce Featured in "Alchemy of Decay" Exhibition
This work was done using an old book that artist Patricia Pearce turned into a book art Sculpture. The piece was in my attempt to honor the Alchemy of Decay. The idea of changing an old book into something new, allowing the alchemy of the oldness to bring it back to life. The book was dyed and formed for a period of thirty days. Once it is formed and dried, it was then wrapped and sealed in wax. It is a one-of-a-kind table piece and not meant to be hung on the wall. The color palette was used to create a look of oldness.
