Paper tales







Paper Tales represent journal entries of a very personal nature. Instead of words, my emotions and thoughts are expressed through colors, shapes, gestural markings, folds; by superimposing ancient and modern printmaking methods I sculpt, collage, handle paper and turn it into a kosmos where all I need, all I feel, all I want to revisit, re-examine, even forget find a place to be expressed. 

Books speak of humanity’s thoughts, knowledge, history. Their stories become our very own, shadowing our lives’ happenings at the time read. My use of old books and torn pages repurposed to reflect the many roles the printed page has played in my life, enter deep into my “tales” and become the symbol of the coded, the silenced, the secret hidden world that I inherited...

PrintHouston is in its 3rd year and throughout Houston the celebration of printmaking is in full bloom! Participating museums and galleries are showcasing expressions of the medium throughout history to its current rebirth and multifaceted presence. 
I am honored to be included in this amazing art fair with my exhibit Paper Tales.
