  • B. Amore's Street Calligraphies

    Recelty Shown at Boston Sculptors

    By: B. Amore - Jun 29th, 2010

    The work I am doing now has everything to do with those early interactions between my hands, my being, and the exterior world. My hands and thoughts have been the bridge between the worlds, even the fact that I still prefer to write on this white page with a soft lead pencil is evidence of the same basic tendency. Whenever I was sick, lying in bed with the Book of Knowledge encyclopedia spread about me, cutting paper into smaller pieces and stapling them together to make small books into which I would transcribe drawings of monkeys, etc. Hours spent happily reading or making art are still primary pleasures for me.
