Omnia Mutantur, Nihil Interit
Elina Lundahl
Finland, 2013

The familiar Latin phrase Omnia mutantur, nihil interit in this context lends itself to an obscure study of my homeland; both my mental and my physical home, the core place where I come from or where I am perhaps heading to.

Boards covered with chocolate brown Harmatan goatskin, closure mechanism devised of blue-black raku button around which waxed linen thread can be wrapped. Original landscape illustration made with acrylics, ink and Derwent coloured pencil on archival pastel cardstock. The other side of the accordion is painted black with Indian ink.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
