The Latent Landscape

Exhibitions, News

It is about time that I share a few photographs of my Master’s of Fine Arts thesis show, The Latent Landscape, which took place in April 2011 at the Glassell Gallery in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Complete photos of the art exhibition can be seen at www.maybabcock.com. A relevant artist statement is available here.

Literally: large format woodcuts, monoprints, silkscreen and pulp painting on handmade paper, two paper cast installations of the side of a levee, video and some book objects. Materials: bagasse paper,  river mud paper, linen and cotton paper, woodcut, silkscreen and monoprint printmaking and string.

Stream of consciousness words to describe this: mud, constructions, fading, Louisiana, Mississippi, paper, texture, leftover industrial structures, brown, water, river, bagasse, book layers, light and space, surrounding, cave-like, transposing, brought to you, everything from a site, drawing, observing, land, man made, hand made, economy, reuse, relook.
