Nance Miller Artist Statement

Since the beginning of time humans have searched for a way to leave their mark, have their story remembered.  In this series I am exploring the concept of evolution, rebirth, and remembrance.  In this body of work I am exploring storytelling by using the traditional format of a book, yet deconstructing it into a new and wholly different form. 

Many of the pieces reflect nature, as a nod to the paper’s humble origins. With discarded books, each piece explores storytelling, whether through returning to trees, or by taking on a new form.  Parts and pieces are reassembled and re-imagined to tell a story that is ever deepened by the many stories already told in the fibers of its existence.
