Please join artist Yasaman Moussavi during the final gallery hours of her solo exhibition Roots at Spudnik Press Cooperative and her culminating public program as our 2017 Resident Artist.
Moussavi’s personal and intimate artwork consists of etchings and handmade paper. Through the process of layering and reconstructing handmade papers, she fuses the intricate and arresting forms found in her etchings with dynamic natural forms. Her work explores the ties between individual and environment, unearthing emotions, associations, and memories that one attaches to physical spaces to discover the abiding bond between nature and us.
Throughout the afternoon, Moussavi will be demonstrating the process she has developed to make her handmade paper. Guests may even try their hand at producing their own paper from pulp and embedded materials.
