LEXICON BOOK

watercolor, gouache, pen, pencil, gold-leaf, photo transfer, charcoal, glue, medium, glitter, photographs, string, house paint, etc.

These are pages from the Lexicon book which consists of meaningful words and graphics, a collection of morphemes.  Using multimedia, I've appropriated "The Rubaiyat", by covering it's pages with Gesso, while leaving various words visible that have initiated the visual elements I've added throughout.  Characteristics of decay, texture, memory, ephemerality all play a part in both concept and process.
