May Babcock, handmade paper, papermaking artist

Installation at Paperworks Pop-Up Gallery in Providence

Exhibitions

In or around the Providence, Rhode Island this January? I’m happy to announce an installation of new papermaking artwork at the Paperworks downtown storefront.

On view are 6 handmade paper works. Each has a portion of previously made works (ranging from cast pulp prints, silkscreen prints, seaweed books, river mud books) embedded in transparent abaca fiber.

More interesting, in this alternative space, it was exciting to view these as 2-sided works. Depending on the lighting and time of day, these paper pieces transform dramatically. I’m still planning on stopping by a few more times to see how they change!
