Sophie
Bristol, England:: Ral Veroni,, 1998.. Edition of 15. 22 x 21 cm with 120 pages laser printed on Transmarque paper of 110 gms. Housed in a portfolio box bound in gold paper with the title embossed in blue on the front. Made at the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England, Bristol. A deliberately disorienting combination of Lynn Ward and Julio Cortázar. This portfolio of Veroni's drawings, printed on transparent paper, chronicles a turbulent time in the artists' life (see his comments below). Textless. The format encourages reader/viewer interaction to construct meaning. The Colophon provides some hints. The comments below help even more. Veroni: "I like the idea that the viewer can play with the order and combination of the images. The concept of the book was that of playing with a number of multi-layered designs, gaining in depth and changing, in turn, with a series of suggestive-and not quite fixed-meanings. At the same time I wanted to keep a certain track of the original order I gave to the images. "The book was made in Bristol in 1998 after falling in love with a French girl called Sophie. I was captivated. I found it ironic that a woman with a name meaning wisdom could make me lose my head.... I couldn't sleep for many nights and the drawings I did during those days were my way to achieve some kind of catharsis. I put all together within the book: mixed reading of Greek myths along with the legend of Orpheus plus my own feelings and interpretations. No wonder ambiguity and confusion remains throughout its pages.
