Artist Books are a wonderfully diverse genre and my work is much the same. I'm fascinated by structures and boxes, both traditional and invented. Most of the books included here have some unique sculptural or spacial element to them.

50.00

Remnants brings the world of four women naturalists to life, and re-frames their stories as underrecognized naturalist of their time, in a more personal context. The four women explored and honored in this artist book are Maria Sibylla Merian, Mary Anning, Clara E. Cummings and Marianne North. The macro photographic specimens included and documented in the book open the door into the world these women wandered and wondered in. They offer a tangible and personal connection to the the discoveries and observations these women made.  

The narrative of this book centers around their lives and the fascinations that fueled their passions and imaginations. Each women's chapter within the 24 page book entails a personal look into an individual woman’s life passions as well as a biographical chart of her accomplishments. Remnants offers a tangible and personal connection to the discoveries and observations these women made, scientifically and in strides for all women interested in the field of science. Remnants is a quest to find a new perspective on the accomplishments of early female naturalists not recognized by society, by viewing nature through their lens, in order to better understand their world by examining our own.
