book, billboard, copper, steel

The Book of the Hand IV is made from an existing book, torn apart and stitched together with copper wire. The artist incorporates imagery of a hand from a book on Palmistry and an invented, suggested text of salvaged bits of rusty steel detritus. Hands always represent the 'hand of the artist' to Archer, the hand that shapes and creates and gives form. The lines in the large hand and the accompanying page of text are a reference to Palmistry books and thus the life and fate of the artist. The symbols are intended as a personal language that even though 'spelled out', cannot be directly understood or translated but certainly appreci- ated.
