Recommended by Emma (Marketing & Communications Manager):
"Storytelling is paramount in Michèle Landsaat's works, which are created for narrative artist's books. The Busy City is a backdrop for one such story, and its whimsical frenzy draws you in to the imagined world. Landsaat creates a tapestry of details in the style of simplicity, layered with countless invitations to the viewer's curiosity. Viewed outside the context of an artist's book, the viewer begins to tell stories of their own about the characters and moments within. Busy City is a delicious opportunity to unleash the imagination."
