Folding Painting: "Storigami": Folds into a book jacket
This is one of the pieces in my Folding Art Series. One of my co-workers suggested the title: "Storigami". It's brilliant! I'm going to use it.
This piece is an 18"x18" double-sided acrylic painting on six 6"x9" panels that fold up into a book jacket type enclosure fastened with a small leather belt and buckle (an old watchband). The painting was done using the same technique as the large stenciled spray painted panels I did earlier this year ("Composition Paintings" 2010), only on a much smaller scale.

The photos below show how the panels fold, and some of the many possible positions in which one might display this piece. It could be used as a centerpiece on a table: laid out flat, it could serve as base for bouquet in a vase, or folded like a tent, or standing like a screen.
