“After doing these studies of Ken (and of Laurie on the other side in a contrasting colour), I folded the paper into an 8×8 meander book. The way the book is folded allows the two sides to interact.
Each page contains only a fragment of the figures, and unfolding the book allows the whole story to emerge.”Helen Cook

“I’m continuing the exploration of mediums. I used Ken to help me do that. As I continue to develop as an artist, I’m learning there are a whole host of mediums I’ve never explored at all, and some, I’m just getting starting to understand as a whole.
This is an amalgamation of that work using ken as my muse. As I stepped back and looked at the presentation, I would have typically called many of these ‘unfinished’”’ or ‘“’underdeveloped.’”’ I chose to keep them that way because that’s exactly how I feel as an artist at the moment.
These images have great strengths and even greater weaknesses that I constantly try to avoid. Leaving them this raw is a reminder that I’m still cooking as an artist and that’s totally fine. Thanks Ken and Art Prof!”Amanda Norris
