The Common Online – The Book of Ikons

This is the product of Katherine (Kate) Hollander’s and my collaboration which started as large-format monoprint response to a five-poem series written by Kate, continued into a large book project collaboration¬†through Boston University, and was subsequently published through The Common, an online prose, poetry, and imagery series associated with Amherst College.

The Boston Online Biennial 2011 was an inaugural competition sponsored by the Biennial Project. This was the first year this type of competition emerged, and I felt compelled to apply as it has a local feel to it, yet there was much international competition.

I was selected as one of the honorable mentions for this online gallery showing, and although it appears that there was much modern media selected, there were some painters and traditional fine artists as well.

This was the piece they selected of mine, “Passport”:

Oil on Canvas, 48"x48", 2011
