Dog ear composition. no 5

Joe Devlin


The piece included in the exhibition is part of an ongoing series of compositions constructed from paper based on dog ears found in the pages of library books. The artist searches the shelves, scrutinizing the margins of books, to find suitable existing configurations, made by unmet readers, as a starting point for minimal, sculptural interpretations. 

Folded paper
8 x 7.5 cm
