In This House showcases a collaborative art project that explores innovative altered art and collage techniques by top mixed media artists.Not simply an ordinary art - or artist's book, this is a visionary exploration of a myriad of diverse interpretations of the concept "home".
Each artist was asked to create five altered art rooms to complete an individual 9" x 12" 'house' that closes like a book or can stand in accordion style. Each house is a part of a larger whole; a neighborhood of twelve unique and fascinating art-full houses, varying in execution, theme, and style. The project explores the theme of "home," while at the same time, offering readers a bountiful visual collection of artwork and quotes as well as tips and techniques from the artists who participated. The back of the book includes a blank "house" template and a gallery of home-themed imagery that readers can alter and use in their own collage work.
Participating artists include: Sarah Fishburn & Angela Cartwright, Nina Bagley, Jill Haddaway, Kelly T.M. Kilmer, Susie LaFond, Céline Navarro, Jen Osborn, Lesley Riley, CW Slade, Erika Tysse, Tiffini Electra X and
