I’ve been invited to participate in an exciting works on paper (and of paper) exhibition at the Highwire Gallery this November! Participants hail from as close to home as Philadelphia and from as far as Korea!
I’ll be showing some of my paper mache characters, Hansel & Gretel and The Big Bad Wolf along with some handmade paper pieces.
These handmade paper pieces were created from the proofs of jumbled fairy tale broadsides, and continue the mixing of stories.
Some of the pieces of text and illustrations were left whole during the paper making process. These pieces were then mixed up and used as inclusions in the new sheets of paper. In some cases, I allowed the inclusions to mix together in the vat of pulp. In other instances, I randomly pulled pieces of text and image and helped situate them in the sheet formation. Displayed on a wall, they will create yet another new narrative of mixed up fairy tale characters and scenarios.
Join us for an opening reception on Friday, November 2, 5-9 pm with a special guest speaker, Professor Michael Moore of PAFA.
Exhibition Dates: November 2 – December 2, 2012.
