artist books and prints: obsessing In the series, obsessing, I have created a series of one-of-a-kind books, in addition to prints that explore this image and idea. In these images, private journal texts slow down the gaze of the viewer. Repetitive phases such as "she looks she looks she looks, she moves the edges of the night, she finds no source within herself, she moves through", create a veil over the body. As in my drawings, the body becomes a metaphor for the vulnerability expressed in the words. The words convey an obsessive questioning of self, perhaps during the surreal atmosphere of night, when the edges are blurry, but the focus is intense. It represents a kind of psychological struggle or search for identity. Most of this work was completed between 1995-2000 and has been exhibited as recently as 2002. Several pieces are included in museum or university collections.
