Knots and Boxes

Richard Rothman

Studio L recently published Knots and Boxes, a book documenting the work and stories of thirteen visitors to Leslie Laskey’s studio and home in Manistee, Michigan, during the summer of 2013. Photographs, work samples, and stories were gathered from each student and edited by Richard Rothman into a graphic narrative of one summer’s worth of work in a wide array of media. Prints, woodcuts, collages, paintings, drawings, and three-dimensional constructions based on knots at all scales: from thread to neckties, from tree branches to human bodies.
