I read on Christine Clemmensen's blog last night that Elsebeth Gynther passed away. I never met, nor spoke with Elsebeth and yet her work touched me. Both Elsebeth and Christine co-wrote the book, Scraps: An Inspirational Field Guide to Collage. It's one of the few how to books that I kept in my recent purging of books. Scraps is well written and the art is inspiring. I'm very saddened by her death. The art community has lost a few good souls in recent weeks. I couldn't let Elsebeth's death go unmentioned. Christine has a wonderfully written tribute here.
