THE
PALIMPSEST
SERIES BOOK

"Magnetic fields of opposing charges — movement against static,
a dusty palate, a neon splash, tension and release, the Palimpsest
photographs are densely layered and inhabit spaces between

abstraction and figuration."
- Artist Statement : Wendy Bednarz

Inspired by the above, we recreated the layers of the distressed
filter that Wendy used to create the haunting images of The
Palimpsest Series. We did this by implementing layers of texture,
text and colour on sheets of tissue and transparency paper
throughout the artist book.

In the true spirit of the word "palimpsest", each turn of a page
added a new layer to the page before, altering it, but still
bearing visible traces of its earlier form.
