Name: Andrea Myers
Statement: Within my recent series of paper pieces, I construct layered pieces that become three dimensional from the process of compiling pieces of paper and fusing each piece together into a whole. Initially, I begin with screenprinting open fields of color onto each piece of paper, and then I randomly glue them together, creating a rectangular stack that I then tear into by hand. As I tear into the piece, color combinations emerge, creating a spontaneous composition that is derived from a subtractive process. The tearing process allows indentations or negative space to form, which becomes the focal points of the pieces. I am interested in constructing pieces that emulate a weathering process, paralleling everyday subtle shifts, such as paint peeling or sidewalk cracks. The small fractures found in everday life resonate the human presence within the larger landscape, suggesting a vulnerability that is akin to an ever changing environment.
