An upcoming volume by low-vision artist Erica Dornbusch. Images and words evoking sacred stories and a mindful connection to self and setting.
About this Project
This hardcover 9×12” perfect bound art book will feature a series of new paintings, companion prose and line illustrations. The concept was born of my 2017 Prose Paintings series that spoke to the viewer’s own experiences through poetry and images. The sold out series, exhibited at Westland Gallery in London ON in December 2017, received a beautifully overwhelming response, and calls to consider a printed publication.
New works are underway and the book will move into production early next year. A show, sale and launch of the originals and book will take place at Westland Gallery in London in 2019.This project has received support for the content creation phase from the London Arts Council through the City of London’s Community Arts Investment Program and I am so grateful to them and for the ongoing support of Westland Gallery as a community partner.
Breathing a Book into Being
But making a book is expensive! While I have applied for a grant towards production at a provincial level, there are no guarantees on winning that funding. So I’ll also be seeking corporate sponsorship and launching a Kickstarter campaign. Here is where I hope you will come in!
Making it RealYour Support will be integral to the actualization of this anticipated book! My desire is for this book to resonate as an affordable means to collect art and story that fosters a meaningful and mindful connection to self, setting and community. Your support will also help create awareness of my work as a visually impaired artist.
