This is artwork #43 in the series Letters to a Friend, a body of work I started in 2017 in response to my best friend passing away from cancer. letterstoafriend.com

This a very unique accordion style book which consists of artwork created on 8 panels. Reverse side is 6 golden panels with a poem handwritten in French which I created as a (letter to my friend) reaction to the 2020, Covid19 experience we are all going through. Written in French, with translation the poem reads...

Rêve Insolite

nous sommes ensemble
(only in dreams
we are together)

te souviens tu
(do you remember)

comment toucher

rappelles toi
pour toujours
(remember
forever)

comment nous touchons
(how we touch)

comment tenir
(how to hold)

Text inscribed with Japanese drawing ink.
