This book is a multi-layered journey through time and space. It started many years ago when as an art history student I photographed a personification of Anger from the column in the Romanesque church of Norbertine nuns in Strzelno, Poland. Later when I studied printmaking in New Jersey, thousands of miles away from my native country, I produced an intaglio print of it followed by added abstract silkscreen images on top. Eventually I used this print to create a book. I collaged to the pages cut up drawings and other ephemera from my current life in the Arizona desert and my travels to Poland.  The image in the center of the book shows sailing. It was one of my favorite activities and yet it is not possible to enjoy here in the desert - now is more of a dream or a past journey.
