Peter Too

Peter Beard's journals are powerful statements of a land that is in the process of radical change...I have talked about his work before, but I love his sketchbooks/journals so much....They have texture and vivid imagery...strong visual relationships and do an excellent job of documenting his time in Africa...

This piece is a good representation of his journals...dimensional and tattered...defining of the day are attached to the large pages...incorporating his on photographs and trial attempts...these pages show his creative process...seeing them in person is the only way to really appreciate the work...but I guess I would have to say that of all art!
