Patty Bruce is currently a resident of Boston, Massachusetts. She earned a MSED from the University of Southern California and a degree in graphic design while in Texas. Her interest in binding started building about a decade ago which has now developed into a full time passion. She trains at the American Academy of Bookbinding with Monique Lallier specializing in French binding and studies other archival structures from Jan Sabota in the Czech Republic. Her experiences now include printmaking, letterpress and sculptural binding allowing a fuller realization of the completed book.
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.
