DESCRIPTION

Box Gallery  presents Krista Peters in an exhibition of new works on paper and bronzes entitled: Scar Paper

Exhibition dates are: July 8 – August 6, 2011. An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, July 8, 5–7 pm

Writes Peters: "I am working with twine, nerves, channels - a negotiation of lines that exist in physical space.  String, spanning distances, lifts objects in static movement, in calcified motion.  Paper expands and contracts, bloats, wrinkles, bubbles, ages.  As it is worked it is lived, worn through its motion.  It is pulled and prodded, torn and appended, slowly healing-over until it forms its own skin."

Utilizing a variety of drawing materials and processes, including lithography, collage, India ink, pigment, and gouache, Peters makes images of bones, skeletons, human and animal figures on thin but robust gompi tissue paper. Although these works are 2-dimensional, the handmade paper provides a textural third dimension, especially in the works that are pinned directly (unframed) on the wall.
