ART: Molly Springfield

According to her website, Molly Springfield's art "frequently addresses the differences between seeing and reading and relationships between memory, materiality, and language."
There's currently a show at Steven Wolf Fine Arts in San Francisco which I highly suggest. Anyhow, she takes photocopies of books and reproduces them as drawings. It's incredibly intricate and beautiful. My personal favorite piece was a reproduction of a sermon her Methodist grandfather gave back in the day. Just fantastic stuff. I also like how each work she does conveys a sense of calm and dedication. I'm also a huge fan of photocopies in general, so that doesn't hurt.
