By Paul J. Karlstrom (Author), Linda Tesner (Author), Ashley Stull Meyers (Author), Marit Berning (Author), Mary Chomenko Hinckley (Artist), Brian Ferriso (Foreword)
Portland-based artist Mary Chomenko Hinckley (born 1951) creates works in bronze, resin, glass, paint and paper that explore the intersection of the natural world and urban life. This monograph spans 40 years of Hinckley’s career, presenting over 150 of her three-dimensional animals and geometric works on paper.
I started editing most of the reviews in 2016 because my PhD in English (a humblebrag if you’ve ever seen one) has to be put to use somehow. So I know “the about” all the books and how good they are, which is super cool in general but also terrible for my budget. And I’m the one insisting on the Oxford comma. It’s the hill I’ll die on. I would kidnap Lily the office dog if a) I didn’t have three cats, b) I don’t also love Heidi and Ross and would never hurt them, and c) I didn’t just make a public record of intent to commit a crime. I also help with posting articles to the websites and doing book round-up articles.
