Poppy Dully's Artist's Statement and Show Images
My artist’s books are products of discoveries. The images follow the story line and capture visual records of significant thematic moments. Words and phrases surface, catch the reader’s attention and abstractly reinforce the images. I like to explore how we process information. Is it the word or image that you gravitate to first? How does one enhance the other? How does chance change or enhance our understanding?
The three intaglio prints were made from drawings made on Grass Mountain, property recently acquired by Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. These coastal subjects speak to my love of nature and my inherent need to explore and record where I go.
