Prints and Paper, Fall 2014

A summer printmaking intensive with my dear friend Gail helped me to get ready for the fall faculty exhibition with my colleague, David Long. Our exhibition, 10.14 , was on display in the newly renovated and renamed Robert W. Regier Art Gallery at Bethel College from September 26 – October 24.

 

It always  feels like a relief to have the work matted, framed, and hung on the walls, but I also feel a real sense of energy that these are not complete – that they are the first stages in a larger project. Particularly as I think about some of the found imagery from Berlin flea markets, I am excited to consider possible next steps.

The more I work with paper, the more I am reminded of how viscerally powerful I find paper-cutting, -folding, -stitching… Looking back, I see that working with paper has been a lifelong love and I am thrilled to be able to make this part of my creative practice as an adult.

Thanks very much to the many friends, family members, and gallery patrons who have supported my work this fall, and to juror Stephen Gleissner for awarding one of my Cyan Arbor prints a cash prize in the recent Arts Council exhibition.
