HANDMADE ART BOOKS A creative adventure with Latvian-Australian artist SYLVIA CONVEY
Sylvia Convey works across many mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, textiles and wearable art. She is also known for her handmade art books, which incorporate a variety of materials including handmade paper, textiles, thread, ink, tannin, markers and paint.
"Each book has its own style and theme, telling its own story. Artists’ books are artworks that use the concept of the book, but are free from the constraints of traditional publishing." - Sylvia Convey
From her childhood Sylvia had the gift of being able to transmute her joys and sorrows into poetic images which have the power to enchant and disturb. A true visionary, her images are derived from her own day to day and oneiric experiences. Intuitively she has tapped the richness of her ancestral heritage which adds a decorative radiance to her images. An engaging eroticism is also a dominant theme in her work.
