Gabriella Solti | MCBA Prize 2015 Merit Award
Gabriella Solti’s (BFA, 2011) artist’s book, The Book of Hours, was awarded the MCBA Prize 2015 Juror’s Special Recognition of Merit Award. The book will be exhibited at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts from July 17 to August 3, 2015 alongside with the other honoured works.
The Book of Hours is a unique, 120 page codex that expresses the artist’s personal values relating to labour. The pages of the books are hand sanded chromium oxide and silicon carbide microfinishing films – surfaces that are extremely hard to erase -, interwoven with hand coloured frosted mylar and meticulously bound into a codex.
