Horizon, 2012

Horizon is a contemporary sculptural artist book focused on the near and far horizons. The book concept is a dimensional expression reminding the artist to think fresh ideas, creating new horizons in his or her mind. In this case, the book communicates through a hint of Mondrian-style moving sculptural binding with the message, "Think, Express and Unlock Your Art." We all have concepts inside of us, which are our personal horizons. This work is meant as a statement that it is needful to create and develop our art and not withhold expression for fear of disapproval or criticism.
