Laurie Alpert is a printmaker and book artist who exhibits her work regularly at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston’s South End, and has also exhibited nationally and internationally. She is a Professor Emerita, Department of Fine and Applied Arts at Curry College.
Laurie writes: “For quite some time, my prints had included music and a variety of different types of text. Each piece was sequential, but confined to the rectangle, and it made perfect sense to me to transform them into books. I became more and more interested in sculptural forms and the different ways in which books can be bound (or unbound). The origin of the work is inconsequential – it is the alteration that gives the image its new life.”
