Swimming In Art

Description

Each spread contains a separate poem describing the author's dreams and thoughts while swimming in a unique water landscape (river, ocean, bath house). Unlike her title, A Diver Does not Abandon, the accordion structure of this work does not facilitate the text and images floating across the pages. Instead, the layers of paper provide weight to her edge-to-edge, watery imagery.

Inscription: Signed by artist below colophon in pencil and numbered to the left.
