Lisa Congdon has a show opening at Rare Device in Brooklyn NYC in April - I couldn't wait to share this image with you as I just love it so much. Lisa has a great blog called A bird in the hand where she documents her work in progress.
"Mandy Prowse studied painting and printmaking at Maidstone College of Art. She explores natural and human forms and the interconnectedness of all things. Themes in her work relate to birth, mortality and metamorphosis. Her altered books are minimalistic and organic combining a modern aesthetic with an almost Victorian touch. If you told me these books were 100 years old I wouldn’t think twice about it.”
