White Is For Witching by Helen Oyeyemi
I will be submitting this piece printed on 20x30 canvas, to the “Ex Libris: 100 Artists, 100 Books" exhibition taking place in Seattle, WA next month.
Here’s the blurb:
"Ex Libris: 100 Artists, 100 Books is an exciting exhibition that aims to bring together the worlds of visual art and literature. This exhibition is inspired by the presence of the Association of Writers and Publishers Conference (AWP), which will be visiting Seattle in February, 2014.
The invited artists will present works that draw inspiration from books that are important or special to them. All genres will be represented, from sci-fi to non-fiction, poetry to romance.
A selection of these works of art will be on display during AWP at the Washington State Convention Center, from Feb. 26 – March 1st.
To see the entire collection, please join us for the grand artist reception at AXIS Gallery in Pioneer Square on March 6th, from 6PM to 9PM.
308 1st Ave S.
So, if you’re in and around Seattle during this time, keep an eye out. I chose that particular book for many reasons, partly because it made me feel like I was on mind bending drugs, and it made me scared of my house for about a week. It’s a wonderful combination of surreal horror story/fairy tale.
