Santa Ynez, California:: Pamela Zwehl-Burke,, 2003.. Edition of 15. 6 x 5.5" closed; 28 pages. Horizontal accordion structure. 26 zinc etchings. Pamela Zwehl-Burke: "Etchings record the cycle of the rose providing images of the frowsy 'blown' beauty and the unpetalled rosehip to complement the more conventional bud and bloom.... "This is in some ways a typical artist book in that it is without a text and it means to tell a story by a movement through a series or sequence of images….It means to be a meditation on aging. "We tend to love roses when they are in their premature state. We are usually less interested in them as they begin to loosen and begin to lose their profile, as it were. Which is kind of true of other things in our world especially women moving from nubile to mature and post-mature. But the drawing of them is an extraordinary pleasure. Careful attention to them is enormously rewarding because there is beauty in the change of form that we ought probably to pay more attention rather than less attention.
