Reception Friday, January 12, 2018 5-7pm
The monument series books are mixed media assemblage. Working in paper, fabric, and other fibrous materials, I appropriate traditional practices of printmaking and bookmaking, using them toward my own ends. Papers are covered with screen print and transfer print processes including altered book pages, often discarded books.
I have been using current events in my Monument series to honor the environment and victims of tragedies. I gather images, articles, visit sites, take photos and keep it all in my journal. Each work prompts the viewer to make historical or contextual associations-to think about what it means to encounter this story at this moment.
