The Artful Side of Things

Response from Macy Chadwick, In Cahoots Press

In response, some consider artist’s books an art form, as I do, others don’t. On the artful side of things, here is a quote from sculptor John Chamberlain: “Artfulness has to do with taking a common thing and making an uncommon item…it’s the difference between making a product, copying something you happen to like, and going into an idea deeply and using very common material to bring out a knowledge that has not yet been revealed…this is the high tradition of what art is about, or what I feel it is about.”
