"Grief" - limited edition hand-painted Artist's Book


"Grief" is a story told through 22 paintings (see sample pages below). Ingrid created it at a time when words seemed inadequate, so she painted how grief felt. The story begins with a single tear. More tears fall, pool, and eventually fill the frame. A (purposefully) too-long period of full-dark pages follow. Just when the dark seems overwhelming, a single star appears that shifts the viewer's perception of the darkness as an ocean-of-tears to a gentler dark of night-sky. Slowly, stars return. Clouds come, but then dissipate. A long-awaited dawn finally brings the promise of light. LIMITED EDITION OF 6, 23 pages ISBN 978-0-9992377-0-0 Tea-dyed, hand-painted with acrylics on handmade paper. Coptic binding with Icelandic wool yarn. In box. Signed and numbered.
