Chapel of Uncommon Prayers

Chapel of Uncommon Prayers is an installation  of unique  books and book objects, using hand shapes and gloves, created with traditional bookbinding techniques used in a non-traditional way, The installation explores my relationship to prayer and devotion in a world that presents increasingly difficult questions.

The subjects of the books range from the personal to the political, from our desire for shelter, nourishment and love to broader themes of war and peace. The design of the installation suggests a cloister suitable for meditation, a feeling i hoped to enhance by painting the walls of the gallery in rich, saturated colors.
