Sid Dickens’s “Fable” arrives with a breath of optimism, lending warmth and enchantment to this Spring 2007 collection. Continuing to surprise with his infinite variations, Sid now inspires us with a new element. Each presenting its own unique image within the collection, these seven Memory Blocks are offered up as pages in a modern day fable. This collection conjures narratives of romance and mystery from times past. “Storybook”, the cornerstone tile of the collection, evokes the promise of “Once upon a time…”, nostalgic lettering on yellowed parchment bound by Dickens’ signature scroll. The tale is completed with his beloved alphabet of pattern, foliage and rusted iron. Dickens brings us a fairy-tale of the heart, fragments inviting us to imagine our own treasured stories.
