Marian Crane: "Ten double-sided collaged loose panels based on torn-up art etchings given to me by Phoenix Art Group a long time ago. Paper collage and sewn beadwork add to the handpainted details, as well as an original humanist poem, 'Prayer of the Agnostic,' handwritten on the etched side. "The base imagery on the front comes from the recycled print etchings on heavy cotton rag paper, which are then inked, painted, collaged, and stitched/beaded with glass and shell beads. Additional pages were built from blank cotton rag paper, then embellished to match. The backs of the cards continue the indigo and scarlet themes in abstracted paintings. Collaged postage stamps with science, technology, and humanist/socialist themes underscore the message of the text."
