    To quote the artist: "I have been a fanatic collector of objects all my life - ceaselessly stock piling junk, images and ideas...  Everything - my art, environment and life - have come together and merged into one...  Through my art, I construct a world of memory, humor and stories.  Best of all, I live in that world and invite others in."
     
    The BOOK IS festive and fun.  Every time you look at it, you see something for the first time.  It is  wildly colorful, a triumph of complexity.  Owning and READING it is a wonderful way to be part of Judy Onofrio's world as well as your own.
