A small illustrated handmade book, a painting on wood of my mom in Polish costume, found postcard and a bottle that encases words, dried flowers.
A drawing that describes the distance I feel from my Polish family. Miss them dearly.
I LOVE this!
Working on hand drawing these covers for my new book debuting at PIX tomorrow! Each cover is different and the book includes a tiny envelope that houses a secret message written on Nepalese Loka paper. The book is a meditation on the art of disappearing. Hope to see you there!!
Location: 10 S.19th Street in the city’s South Side neighborhood.
Hours 10-5pm then the panels begin at 7pm!
