I’m happy to announce my latest show, Land Studies, a solo exhibition of my new papermaking work at the AS220 Project Space Gallery in Providence. It’s my first Rhode Island art show! Take a look at my new pulp paintings and sculptural papermaking installations based on sites around Rhode Island and coastal New England.
After a run of some popular basic hand papermaking classes at the AS220 Print Shop, a sculptural papermaking class seemed to make sense. Pulp painting is fantastic, but so is taking advantage of the artistic potential of paper to be three-dimensional. Working with paper pulp or freshly formed, wet sheets opens up a world of sculptural techniques that utilize how wet paper sheets dry and the remarkable memory that paper fibers have. Lindsey Beal and I had a great time showing a range of sculptural techniques in this debut class. Check out some photos from the workshop!
The local art scene in Baton Rouge is getting noticeably more exciting!
Elevator Projects is an art collective that holds “pop-up” experimental art exhibitions. It was started by a group of LSU graduate art students who saw a need for more open platforms for art in the community.
More about Elevator Projects in this article, and Facebook here. The most recent exhibition is Fluxswitch, in which I installed collaborative paper work in. Keep scrolling down for photos from the opening night.
