Ann Kronenberg – Interactive Book-Painting #57: Pastel Marbling

Artist Statement

For several decades, my bookworks included visuals and texts which were representational—told a literal story. Approximately 20 years ago, I created my first abstract book—a pop-up—essentially a painting in book form. Currently, the vast majority of my bookworks are book-paintings telling formal visual stories. I use a variety of mixed media painting and monoprint techniques and collage. Almost all of my bookworks—abstract and representational —are unique works.
