Seep

New work inspired by travels to Japan. Created with washi, Japanese style kozo paper made from mulberry bark. Each sheet of paper was folded and hand dyed, some were relief printed with white ink. The sheets were then given bamboo legs and attached to the wall in such a way to create a semi-circle relief. The work is entitled Seep and references the idea of how different cultures influence each other, that often it can be subtle yet truly effective— Like dye permeating a surface.

This piece was made possible by generous funding from a Glick Fellowship, a Lurcy Grant from the School of Liberal Arts, and the Newcomb College Institute of Tulane University.
