Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: My painting represents a burning library, one cliché element of the book that can be easily identified. The work is simplistic as to showcase the title and add emphasis to the books. I chose to paint it with gouache because the light quality of the paint could offset the heaviness of the subject matter.
