River of Grass
The book turned out beautifully & holds complex, layered images of the Everglades from the past that appear to glow. That is the power of the images in the book: they seem to emit some kind of light. The images come from her research & layered the images digitally & with the letterpress here at the Center. It is a portfolio style book & the pages are housed in a saddle brown handmade paper envelope that contains a mahogany tree seedpod closure, which I think is genius.
Dot was truly a welcoming force of creativity & enthusiasm who seemed to cherish the mission of the JCBA & she fitted in very smoothly. We hope to see her around more & she made a great, first Artist in Residence. You can follow Dot & her continuing work at her facebook page.
