Sneak preview! Here are some snippets of an upcoming art exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana that I organized and am collaborating in for the SGC International Printmaking Conference. Uncharted Territories: A Printscape is a collaborative installation by a group of emerging artists in South Louisiana. The installation includes a conglomeration of large format printmaking, papermaking, fiber, video projection, sound and light.
I knew paper was magical! Japan’s Sony has developed a type of battery that runs off of recycled paper, or more specifically, the cellulose fibers in the paper.
May Babcock, Cinclaire Study 4
My print/hand paper art was accepted into the, here it goes, 5th National Collegiate Handmade Paper Art Triennial. This exhibition is juried by Jane Milosch, and sponsored by the Brodsky Center at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and the Corcoran Center of Art + Design.
Cinclaire Study 4 was part of a series of work shown at The Latent Landscape, my MFA Thesis exhibition in April, 2011. More from that show can be seen at my website, www.maybabcock.com. It is a charcoal paper cast woodcut with charcoal drawing, string and pulp painting. Don’t ask, because my process was most likely even more complicated than summarized. Maybe that’s a future blog post. Maybe.
I did work from observational sketches of the out-of-use Cinclaire Sugar Plantation, across the river from here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Interested in my artist statement? Click here.
