Re: [BKARTS] Quotes and Definitions

'The only limit to creativity is lack of technique'...
Like Sue Clancy, I am an artist who uses the book format. I adapt the craft of book art techniques to my needs for whatever I am working on. And as a result I wrote the above 'mantra' for myself for those moments when Im having a hard time trying to figure out how to construct something and am tempted to just pack it in.
(literally and figuratively...smile)
I have a simple definition of an artists book (book arts), it is the reinterpretation of the book as an art object. I still get quizzical looks, but it makes the point succinctly.
Susan Rotolo
"Imagination without skill gives us contemporary art."
Thomas Wolfe, The Painted Word
