My Mountain Self.

Jaffe, Sheryl (illus.)

(c. 2009). Quarto. Eight-panel, life-sized self-portrait of fiber artist Sheryl Jaffe. Numbered "1/1" and signed by Jaffe to the interior of the box. In this "sculptural artist book," Jaffe is drawn lying on her back, nude, against a background of earthy greens, sunny yellows, and liquid blues. Climbing over the mountains of her knees and dipping into the valleys of her face, a handwritten poem describing the body as a landscape winds its way around her form. Each panel is drawn on handmade paper; the panels are connected together using twine and locks of the artist's own hair, and each is supported on two sticks. The piece can either be stretched out to its full length of six feet, Jaffe's actual height, or it can be folded up and read as diptychs, progressing page by page from her feet to her head. Housed in a drop-back box decorated with an image of the artist's feet and hair. Very fine. Item #26668

Price: $2,500.00
