In these current works Gable explores the form and concept of the book, using rubber as a primary material. The pieces reflect her interest in the formal elements of color, texture, transparency and light. She is also interested in the book form as a tactile object. It has qualities of longing, familiarity and wonder. It is also a vessel of learning, adventure, history, escape, shared experience and emotion.
