Linda Welch is a painter, sculptor and book artist from Portland, Oregon. Her artist books emanate from a true love of books. She states, “My work is driven by process. Raw material is gathered, selected and manipulated to create further material. It is combined and reworked until the final piece is completed. The act of involvement with the materials ultimately dictates the final form. Each series explores the balance between containment as comfort versus confinement. The notion of what is kept secret versus how much is revealed.”Several books from this series have been acquired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. But don’t let them have dibs on everything! All Concealed Within books are available to take home right away and add to your collection.
