> DESCRIPTION

Artist Shirley Familian explores the infinite possibilities of postage stamps as a pattern and design material. Using stamps like mosaic tiles or fabric swatches, she composes collages that recall quilting, elaborate tile work, or intricate wallpaper design. While the process is repetitive, the result is always unique. The exhibition title reflects Familian’s precise count and arduous indexing of each postage stamp that she used in this collection of work.
