With traditional hand papermaking at its core, Pulped Under Pressure: the Art of Handmade Paper underscores important contemporary issues steeped in history and craft.
Enticed through touch, these works encourage a contemplative slowing down even as they urge acknowledgement of some of the most pressing issues (environmental crisis to global marginalization) facing civilization today.
Each of the artists, Jillian Bruschera, Julia Goodman, Reni Gower, Trisha Oralie Martin, Melissa Potter, Marilyn Propp, Maggie Puckett, starts simply with a foundation of pulp made from natural fibers.
Their multifaceted results incorporate a rich range of printmaking, letterpress, papercutting, and installation with a diversity of recycled disposable materials (junk mail, egg cartons, old cotton t-shirts, ripped denim jeans) as well as old bed sheets, beetroot, heirloom plants, and illuminated el wires. In very unique ways, these artists consider paper beyond its most common function as a passive surface of record or craft. Instead, the material is transformed and imbedded with content that turns communication into a public practice. By challenging assumptions, the artists of Pulped Under Pressure: the Art of Handmade Paper create artworks that are both beautiful and brave.
There are numerous opportunities to add outreach educational programming in the form of visiting artist(s) lectures, gallery talks, workshops, or studio visits.
Given our combined years of curatorial experience of numerous award winning traveling exhibitions, we are hopeful Pulped Under Pressure: the Art of Handmade Paperwill be of interest to you.
Thank you for your consideration.
