Found Art - Discovering Beauty in Foreign Places

Leeana Tankersley

More Information

Description:

Found Art is a memoir of the year author Leeana Tankersley lived in the Middle East with her Navy SEAL husband during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. After a whirlwind courtship, a move across the world, and the unexpectedly difficult re-entry from a year overseas, Leeana finds her life (and her soul) has been changed forever. With an artist's eye, Tankersley uses each chapter to piece together moments and memories from her journey---a handwritten note from Kuwait, a braid of fringe from a Persian rug, an original poem, a bit of basting thread, a swatch of black silk from a borrowed abaya, a mesquite leaf, a Navy SEAL trident, a receipt from the Russian-Georgian restaurant on Louisiana Street---to create a work of unexpected beauty. Found art emerges ... a literary collage created from salvaged stories of loss, hope, and belief that just might change your soul, too.
