Maya Freelon Asante looks at global issues, including war, poverty, waste, beauty, and aging, and makes works which demonstrate her passion to share about these issues. She takes tissue paper, uses water to transfer the pigments onto another paper, and the presses. She makes Tissue Ink Monoprints which look at deterioration and the idea of us staining our history and future.
Finished last project! very relieved. Happy with how it turned out but wish i had prepared more fabric to have made the bottom have thicker.
I visited the VMFA with friends just for the fun of it and was drawn to the exhibit on women from abstract expressionism. I remember really enjoying learning about this movement in class, and so it was neat to get to see a different focus of this movement and see pieces in person. I noticed that the colors used seemed to be more dull or timid than many of what I remember we looked at in class, which was interesting. Much more pastel and muted colors than i was expecting. Part of this could have just been which pieces were specifically chosen, and so i think planning an exhibition is a relay important step of displaying artwork and a message.
Started next project. Excited as to how it might work out. Cut, died, and started tying fabric.
