Text Layer, Shape Shifter: Collage Compositions by Karen Frutiger

Exhibition Website

Jun 3 2017 - Aug 20 2017

"My process is improvisational," explains Frutiger, "I work in layers; usually beginning with paint scraped across the paper, followed by random marks, collage and more paint. Obliteration, dissolution, and uncovering are important parts of my process.  I am particularly attracted to hand writing, distressed paper and my own photographs of obsolete objects and industrial decay.   It is interesting to me to see what emerges in the final piece; echoes of other voices and concerns, forgotten landscapes and subtle reminders of our industrial past."
