Collective Narrative

Collective Narrative


This beautiful piece is constructed with pages from novels by Old Books New Stories in Denver. Here's a statement from the artist regarding her work: "We each have our own individual stories, but they are never isolated – they are intertwined with those we surround ourselves with. In my work I intentionally arrange each book slice to fit snugly up next to a piece with different color tones and size to create a fluid and diverse product. When we place ourselves around others that are not like us, something beautiful is created. Sameness is bland. A piece made from only one book lacks depth and contrast. Our collective narrative – a story told from a variety of people with a variety of viewpoints develops a fuller picture, something more beautiful and complex."
