Forgive the blurred image. The picture was taken through glass. I had found the art store, Vicenc Piera, in the Eixample neighborhood, then rested in a lovely little park. As I left the park, I took a shortcut past Palau Robert and saw the display advertising an exhibit then in residence. Wow! A wonderful collection of images and constructions that coaxed me into the exhibit, a retrospective for the Catalan children’s book author and artist, Roser Capdevila.
What became immediately apparent is that this woman was a genius with cardboard. I imagined that no piece of the corrugated stuff was safe from her, and I love cardboard! So, won over immediately, I noticed the many ways she employed it.
Cardboard folders (even for her bills!).
Cardboard tableau (Mozart’s studio).
And best of all, cardboard theaters! I was inspired. So much so that when I got home, my granddaughter, R., and I put together our own theater.
Thank you, Roser. More cardboard wonders to come!
