DESCRIPTION

Book "Martha Stewart Living in Braille", borax | 2016

Works from this series are currently on view the Crystal Bridges Museum.

Alexis Arnold’s practice is material and process driven. She utilizes sculpture, installations and mixed media 2-D art to create a dialogue around time, transformation and perception. In this Crystalized Book series Arnold contrasts the materiality of the book and the text or content. “The crystals remove the text and solidify the books into aesthetic, non-functional objects. These pieces are transformed into artifacts or geologic specimens imbued with the history of time, use, and memory. The crystals and book shapes spark a sense of wonder akin to a great piece of literature.”

DIMENSIONS

14 x 11 x 6.5

AUTHENTICATION

The work comes with a certification of authenticity signed by the Co-Founder of Tappan

CARE/DISPLAY NOTE

As part of the conceptual intent of the series, the crystallized books are intended to change in appearance over time. While the sculptural form of the book remains in tact, the crystals will gradually transform from translucent to opaque. Keeping the sculpture in a consistent climate with low humidity, normal to cool room temperature or cooler, and away from direct heat and sunlight will preserve the intended slow rate of change in color. Handling should be kept at a minimum.

Arnold's material and process-driven practice explores the structures and phenomena of the natural world across micro to macro levels.
