Talk about haptic visuality! The surface texture on these 2ft x 8ft pulp paintings is mesmerizing. Megan Singleton works with handmade paper made from local invasive plants, such as water hyacinth and alligator weed.
These monumental pulp paintings are based on maps of waterways and bayous that Megan has visited, collecting invasive plants.
