An art exhibition of contemporary katagami paper and metal sculpture focused on bird migration and habitat.
Linssen's approach to carving paper stems from her training in the traditional Japanese art of katazome. A 1,200 year old technique for resist-printing textiles, katazome utilizes the hand carved stencil, katagami. Linssen combines her katagami-style paper carving skills with metalworking and basketry techniques to create contemporary sculpture which transforms her hand carved two-dimensional "stencils" into three-dimensional artworks. This exhibit showcases Linssen's katagami sculptures and kataezome prints.
Opening reception & gallery talk: October 2nd, 1-3pm.
