Jacqueline Rush Lee: INTROspective at the Center for Book Arts

Cailun has a scanned image of the Jacqueline Rush Lee exhibition currently at The Center for Book Arts:

This exhibition of work will showcase sculptures created entirely out of used books with selections from the 2005 Biennial of Hawaii Artists (Epic) and her 2002 exhibition Volumes. VOLUMES (2002) is a body of work that was created entirely from used books. This body of work followed a “petrified” books series of 2000 in which Ms. Lee used kiln processes to transform books. In Volumes water was used to transform the books further. When soaked in water the dyes of the book fore edges bleed and the pages warp into beautiful striations. Once dried the books were then built into geometric forms. EPIC (2003-2005) is an installation consisting of a collection of gypsum cement panels that Ms. Lee calls “Imprescoes; a joining together of the words “imprint” and “fresco.” Using the discarded books of anonymous book owners, the work emerged from an experimental casting process in which book covers, edges, and raw book spines were embedded into gypsum cement, and then removed. As the dyes in the book covers and fore edges “bleed” into the curing gypsum, soft, painterly traces of the books are left behind.



Lovely.

Hi there

THis is just a general note

I'm getting in touch with folk who run New Testament or Biblical History blogs at the moment. I'm sure anyone who reads your blog, as well as yourself would be interested in my radio show webpage www.premier.org.uk/unbelievable where debates between leading Biblical scholars are often featured.

E.g. January is taken up with Ehrman debating Peter J Williams on Misquoting Jesus, then Debating Richard Swinburne on the Problem of suffering, and last week and this is Michael F Bird and James G Crossley debating their joint book "How did Christianity begin?"

You can listen back to the shows online, download the mp3 or subscribe to the podcast

If you would post a blog on it, I would be most grateful, and you may wish to add it to the selection of places to visit on your own blog

Thanks

Justin Brierley
