Notebook for a Transformation. Sandra Jackman.

Notebook for a Transformation.

[New York: 2009]. Unique artist's book / wall hanging with bas-relief sculpture and manuscript notebook, collaged with images and text on each page, signed, with the title and date, by the artist / author on the back of bar from which the notebook hangs, "Sandra Jackman." Size: total dimensions of piece are 11 x 11.25 inches, about 2.5 inches deep; the notebook itself is 4 x 6 inches and including covers has 22pp. all of which have been painted and / or collaged. Bound: purchased spiral-bound notebook covered with hand-made paper and collaged with found materials on the front and painted gold with green and yellow on the back, suspended from a wood bar which had been painted and collaged and serves as base for white paper collage of head of angel / demon, with dried pieces suspended from other side of bar in beaded netting. While the bar has mounts on the reverse to facilitate hanging, it is also housed in a black cloth over boards fold-open box measuring 13 x 12 x 3 inches. The text is troubling. A fragment reads, "None the wiser each side dies believing in the sign..." and we understand that religious fanaticism has caused endless pain and destruction throughout human history. Images are not overt. Well-known religious paintings are covered, mutated, transformed, as is the message of goodness and love that marks most of the world's religions when fanaticism takes over. Disturbingly compelling, this angel and it's book are spectacular. Item #10614
