(Alisa Banks)

Planted.

(Dallas, TX): Alisa Banks, 2016. Octavo. (4)pp., unbound. One of four copies. Signed by the artist/author Alisa Banks. Three stark photographs of plants from Banks' own garden, composed so that their subjects seem both foreign and familiar. Banks' meditation on gardening evokes much of the same; her nostalgia for the earth, for the feel of leaves and the aroma of soil, suggests longstanding comfort, even as Banks' own identity as a black woman and the problematic history of black people with agriculture complicates that relationship. Sheets held in cotton-patterned paper folder, housed in portfolio. Fine. Item #30138

Price: $750.00
