I have learned a little bit more about Cheryl with every piece she sent me. Over the months I got some insight into the way she works, which was also fabulously summarized in the "Overlapping (paper/thread/space)" piece, and I became acquainted with the fascinating concept of Re- .

 

 

Re- is central to Cheryl's work. Re-thinking, Re-painting, Re-constructing, Re-writing. Which, in a way, is not too far from De-De-painting, De-constructing, De-writing. Getting to the Bone of the idea, finding out... what is REALLY behind someone's work?

 

 

Cheryl re-writing my asemic stitches and making this fabulous book out of it, what an honor!! I love the hand-tied knots over the photo of my textile booklet, re-written by machine sewn asemics. 
Hand vs Machine, Thread on Thread, Asemic for Asemic. 
The textile pages are replaced by amazing handmade paper made of paper pulp, pressed onto a (at times visible) grid, thick and haptic rendering.

 

 

There are some very subtle references to the textile booklet that made me smile and that tell a lot about Cheryl's way to round up every work with no less than perfection: the use of tracing paper to mimic the vylene pages, and the slightly shifted arrangement of the pages, each of a slightly different size. 
Cheryl, your cheer up package has worked wonders, as usual, thank you HS!!
