Artist Karrie Ross releases a new book “Our Ever Changing World…through the Eyes of Artists.” Ross has gathered her very talented friends and colleagues to join her in an art project to create a beautiful book. Foreword is by Betty Brown.
“Our Ever Changing World…through the Eyes of Artists” tells the story of artists and features a piece of their work and a story.
This is Book #1 of 3, they are based on questions pondered by the artist in her own life. First Question is: What are You Saving from Extinction? Ross invited 35 artists to join in on the conversation and share their story.
Karrie explains her journey….”Over the past 9 months, I’ve been working on an art project in the form of organizing a book… about artists, a piece of their work and a story. Book #1 of 3, they are based on questions I’ve been carrying around in my mind. The project originated with my inquiry into “why always an artist statement and not a story?” The book took several paths while I was firming up my focus and the artist were very kind and stayed the course as I grew into it and the book morphed into what it is now.”
Ross continues…”Book One, covers my thinking that artists ‘save’ something from being forgotten. I thought this focus would be something everyone can relate to in today’s world of forever changing views, new technology, and global change. I noticed that artists work to bring something that is hidden into light. That their way of seeing our world opens us to new ways of being and thinking. Different perspectives help to bring about change. The stories the artists share, will take you around the word. You’ll learn about different cultures, new technology, variety of feelings, visionary insights, art process, mediums, personal histories and more. Each page takes you to another place of question and seeing the “what” is important enough for the following artists to share about in the hopes that their ‘it’ will be saved.”
