Colors Come to Dance. Poem and Interpretation.

East Hampton, NY: 2017. Artist's book, unique, on red Richard de Bas laid paper, signed by the artist / author, Barry McCallion. Page size: 6.5 x 10 inches; 48pp. Bound: loose as issued 16 folios laid into grey paper wrappers affixed to boards covered in Richard de Bas red paper, with 3 collaged pieces on front panel surrounded by title stenciled in black India ink, letters filled with gold acrylic ink; housed in blue cloth over boards custom-made clamshell box with lable printed on white paper in blue highlighted with yellow, green and salmon, and signed by the artist, color copied images looking through several of the cut-outs collaged to front panel. The pages are cut-through, forming an intricate design when first opening the book and with every page thereafter. The pages are "labeled" by the artist, words printed in white on red labels collaged in the border surrounding the cut-outs, for example, "mere lines / are good enough / for structure...". The pages themselves are the treat - each inviting the viewer to turn the page. Blues and oranges and yellows arch and interact with each other and the shapes are the choreography of a dance.
