Available September 1st at Stampington & Co.
The publisher of Somerset Studio and Art Doll Quarterly is proud to present Beyond Paper Dolls, a new publication dedicated to expressive paper personas crafted with innovative techniques and art mediums. Artist, author and designer Lynne Perrella, has invited over 50 mixed media artists to contribute to this book of over-the-top imaginative interpretations of the human form. Far more than paper dolls, this selection of thought-provoking and innovative “paper personas” will awaken your urge to make artwork that is meaningful, expressive, and full of story-telling.
With creative chapter headings such as “Inner Visions”, “Curtain Up!”, “Celebrations”, “Fetish Figures” and more – get ready to immerse yourself in colors, textures, found objects, paint, fabric, fibers, metal and that eternal favorite paper. In addition, each chapter will also include a “Details Dossier” revealing the artists' techniques for creating the work, and giving you countless clues for using mixed media supplies, as well as spy-glass close-up views of the art to satisfy your inquiring mind.
Pull up your favorite chair, keep a sketchbook close at hand, enjoy the creative banquet served up by over 50 well known artists, and then start plotting how YOU plan to go “beyond paper dolls”.
Just visited Stampington for their preview and to check on the release date and found this! The paper doll assignment prompted me to finally start on a journal on my favorite lady ~ Zelda Fitzgerald. Can't wait to see Lynne's new book, and to show you the other project I made for it! More Zelda pages HERE.
