NIGHT 318 – THE STORY OF ALI SHAR AND ZUMURRUD

6/1001 – SURPRISE! FORE-EDGE PAINTING 1

And now for my latest trick: I’m constantly looking for ways to make works within works, like the stories within stories in the manner of the 1001 Nights for my practice-led PhD at the Slade. Here is one fantastic way: Vanishing fore-edge painting! Painting on the golden gilt edge of a book that is only revealed when the book pages are fanned. Hiding a work within a work and a painting on the edge of a book! Will share the work in progress here too so you can see how it’s done.
