A unique art project and book features the treasures of 22 fictional women.
If you’ve ever noticed a shoe on the side of the road, odds are you wondered how it got there and who it belonged to- but you likely stopped there. When artist Deborah Buck happened upon some real life items, however, she allowed her imagination to run wild.
Deborah Buck owned an antique art gallery in NYC for many years but was forced to close down when the recession hit. Though she could no longer sell anything, she couldn’t stop being drawn to items she came across in flea markets, garage sales and similar places. In her mind she created women to whom these objects belonged, considering who they might be, where they were, what they were doing and what challenged them.
