Continuing my exploratory suminagashi series, I have some new prints on paper. Like the recent fabric pieces (and don't worry, there are more of those to come - I know some of you have been waiting), these are an experimental melding of traditional technique with some heterodox contemporary additives. The process is very unpredictable, but also freeing. It's just what I need after a 4-month stint of intense freelancing. I am so happy to get back in my studio, with renewed focus and an ambitious list of projects.
Some of these suminagashi prints will be on view at the upcoming CBA exhibition Then & Now: Ten Years of Residencies at the Center for Book Arts, opening April 17. The show includes an impressive roster of past residents exhibiting contemporary work alongside pieces from the CBA archive created during their time in residence. It's going to be a jam-packed show and quite the reunion!
Center for Book Arts, 28 West 27th Street, 3rd floor
Opening Reception Friday, April 17th, 6-8pm
Roundtable discussions with the artists will follow on May 1, June 5, and June 19
