Sheets is a collection of four haiku by Dolores Connelly, each poem capturing a moment within a season. The ongoing cycle of homelessness throughout a year is reflected in the patterns and cycling colors printed on the interior of each paper house, muted but shining through translucent fiber.
Artist BioJessica Spring is the proprietor of Springtide Press in Tacoma, Washington where she designs, prints and binds unique artist books, broadsides and ephemera incorporating handmade paper and letterpress printing. Small finely-crafted editions consider historical topics and popular culture from a unique perspective. Jessica was the sort of girl that shunned dolls for stuffed animals, and attended Camp Watervliet, a ranch camp in Michigan. She really wanted to be one of the horse keepers, but after two summers only progressed from sheep to goat care. Jessica has an MFA from Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts and teaches at Pacific Lutheran University and the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle.
