shadowscapes-stephlaw via httpswwwkickstartercomprojects292149352descants-and-cadences-an-art-book-by-stephanie-law Art has always been about the exploration of other worlds to me It is a medium to view the world with a different perspective and to find elements of beauty in what seems ordinary I want to transport myself and my audience into a mirror existence That’s what “Descants Cadences” is — I want this book to be a window to invite you in to participate with my visions For the artwork in this collection I’ve been feeling along the boundary between dream and reality I’ve delved into the language of allegory that we’re all exposed to from the very first nursery rhyme that we hear as a child and rediscover when we read to our own children I’ve sought after tiny worlds of wonder from an insect’s viewpoint I love to get lost in the incredible beauty of growth and decay that you find in nature Most of these pieces were created over the past three years and have never been published in any other volume It includes the Magpie pieces from my sold out series that I showed at Krab Jab Studio as well as paintings from my other popular series — The Stag Sonata Cycle Insecta Strange Dreams and more The book is a stream of consciousness journey following mythical creatures like white stags and faerie queens to much stranger guides and masked creatures Meme
