Patricia Malarcher
Englewood, NJ

I am interested in artist books as structures, sequences, and accumulations of visual information. I am also interested in using contemporary materials to create luminous surfaces evocative of Medieval manuscripts and other ritual objects.

My current series of "Illuminated Pages" consist of printed cultural data and miscellaneous scraps of paper, thread, and fabric in random occurrences. These are laminated in plastic and sewn into pages that become building units. The final construction is tenuous but strong with the elements in interdependent relationships.
