Abstract: Exemplifying the symbolic relationship of materials, form, and space, the works of the exhibition reveal metaphorical signifiers of racial and gender focused binaries while utilizing combinations of traditional and contemporary practice. Understanding the connection between the psychological aspect of making and the object reflects extensive research into the history of origins of semiotics. This practice challenges the physical and poetic boundaries of medium, technique, and material by investigating the relationship of head to hand processes and how this is displayed through the objects. Combining a mixture of printmaking processes and sculptural objects, the work in the exhibition juxtaposes traditional making and contemporary thinking.
