The artist's books of Shirley Sharoff cover three entirely
different subjects: the creation of the universe, the
great wall of China and the exploration of language and
image of the procession. Her method, however, remains the
same: to find the idea which is at the heart of the text
and express it visually in an overall conception of box,
typography and "illustration". The "big bang" in OVI,
the unfolding Great Wall and the graphic entrance
into Procession are
all examples of her vision.
