I am very excited to be a part of the upcoming exhibition: “UNBOUND: Contemporary Prints Inspired by Books” at the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum, Hollins University.
My work will be alongside some really great artists: Nancy Jo Haselbacher, Jason Urban, Justin Quinn, and Lesley Dill.
From their website:
Exhibition curator Jennifer D. Anderson writes, “Many contemporary print artists have produced innovative work that focuses on the relationship between image and text as well as our evolving relationship with the codex and printed forms.”
Condition reports on my work at the museum…
Of all of the artists’ work on exhibition, I enjoyed yours the most. I really appreciated how you took the pop art of a comic book and then deconstructed the page, and as a result the imagery, to show the deeper artistic expression of something seemingly as simple as panel construction or layout. It has me wondering if comics artists either intentionally work with that much depth, or if not, do they realize the subconscious or unintended input that shows in the final product.
Thank you for teaching me something about art and artistic expression that I would not have learned otherwise.
