books, paper, mixed media

I have always admired the work of the Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher. (M.C. Escher 1898 - 1972) I created this accordion book, inspired by his drawing titled Relativity which he created in 1953. This  drawing also reminds me also of a song titled Defying Gravity from the musical Wicked, written by Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman in 2003. I am awed by the various genres of art that amalgamate during my creative process to form a new work.
