Artist's description:

TEMPERA is a painted book object, presenting bold brush-strokes in abstract delight.
May the title inspire viewers to come up with their own words and/or meanings, e.g. tempo, temporary, temptation, or relate it to my self-made paint which is called tempera: pigments mixed with binder, a method used before contemporary ready-paints were invented.

The strong 230 g/m paper has an original width of 70 cm and is painted on one side, then accordion-folded becoming a leporello, and is lightly mounted at the top and bottom into a dark brown cardboard box, size 14 cm x 10 cm, when it's closed with its lid on top - that's where the work fits in.

With the opening of the box-lid the pages start moving and can be flipped and stretched. Most of all this art book object can stand freely in a frontal upright position, then about 40 cm wide. Hanging was not part of the plan.

It has been invited for participation in this gallery exhibition in Berlin:
#TABS-Temporary Artsist's Book Shop I Lage Egal - Raum für aktuelle Kunst
January - February 2015.

Materials used:

pigment, binder, paper, cardboard box
