On view in the Book Arts Studio Gallery as part of Robert Aaron Rusch’s exhibition, “Crumbling Castles”

This piece is available for pre-order only and will be completed Spring of 2021.

From the artist:

Over the past two years, I’ve been creating an artist book produced in a combination of offset and risograph.

Investigating themes like helplessness, obsession, delirium, and humor, I use each page as a meditation on a rambling sense of self-reflection.

A section of the book presents a tongue-in-cheek advertisement catalog with merchandise using images from the book. It aims to reflect on the emotional labor that is involved in the creative process and the pressures of a society that values commercial success above all else. At once I’m disavowing the system I work within while also exploiting it.

Zine collector? Book lover? Art groupie? Buddy o’ mine? Consider pre-ordering my untitled and still un-materialized artist book. It will help me, at least for a little while, make more things.

The book will be completed and sent out early Spring 2021. When you order, you will be added to an email list with updates of progress photos, sent monthly until the project is finished!
