"Cherish" is finished!

The book for the "Curves" Exhibition is finally finished!! I've posted each page in a separate post...my computer had a huge hissy fit when I tried to upload a lot of photos in one go!

Each page inside has it's own title, and has been scanned and printed onto watercolour paper, which was bonded to the back of the page, so that I could add a small amount of text to the 'story'.


My warmest thanks to those precious women who entrusted me with their bras...and especially to Jill - trusting me with this has meant the world to me. I can't wait to show it to her in the flesh!
All the pages follow - I'd love to hear which one/s are your favourites!

Thank you! I'm so sorry I can't translate Spanish though! I was always going to learn...maybe I should!

Absolutely stunning, so beautifully crafted and full of 'depths of meanings'....I find it difficult to choose just one favourite page, if I have to choose, then I think the last page 'hope', because of the positive message it conveys, beautiful stiches and the deep blue of the wine lid....thanks for sharing your work with us Tracey....love Peta

Tracey said...

Peta..you're always so encouraging!! Hope I can show it you "in person!"

After sort of "hearing" you had a blog - I am so pleased to have found it! I love the richness of the colour of all of the pages. The gorgeous jewel tones are a favourite but each page is so special I can't pick just one.
Just inspiring!

Tracey said...

Thanks so much...I'm a bit partial to the jewel tones also...and have to confess a complete inability to choose a favourite myself!

It is a wonderful book idea and the woman who now owns it is fortunate to have such a meaningful art piece. It is cleverly crafted and beautiful to look at.

Thank you Lyn. I am very proud of this piece - and it means the world to me that Jill has it in her possession.
