Betty Pepper

Mixed media and assemblage work with books and text by Betty Pepper...magical right?

These are fantastic! I like how she uses books as a base for the sculptures. They have a wonderful chrysalis shell left behind feel. The empty spaces and shapes are so neat to look at, with the other objects climbing (or fluttering) out.

yes! The "climbing"/escaping element of her work is my favorite part...

her stuff is amazing! I saw it in person at origin last year and it was even more incredible up close!

I'm quite envious that you got to see Betty's work in person Claire! :)
