Artist book, 2022
17,5 x 24 cm, 64 pages
RUSTIQUE is an artist book sprung out of a residency at Hôtel Chevillon, a former Scandinavian artist colony in Grez-sur-Loing, France. Barbizon, the village where the painter Jean-François Millet (1814–1875) lived and died, is located 20 km away from there. The book interweaves the life and work of Millet with Godman’s photographs, drawings and personal anecdotes. RUSTIQUE wishes to put forward the artistic gaze towards rural life by artists who themselves are born peasants.
