Bruno David Gallery
65″ x 245″ x 17″ size variable
Handmade paper, pulp painting, printing (collagraph and digital), hand-cut construction, Mylar, acrylic
The piece is made of multiple layers of hand cut, printed translucent papers that are installed with handmade pins.
Influenced by the memory of a building wave, this piece has grown in size and changed in shape each time it is installed. The round discs are digital images using the circular shape from the first photo taken through a microscope of a cancer cell. I have superimposed images of various cancer cells and details of coral in the discs, referring to our relationship to the sea and deterioration over time.
