Artist Statement:

This exhibition comprises seven bodies of work that explore theidea of the role of narration through static, printed images. These bodies of work take narrative strategies in several different directions, including animation, hand-made book forms, paper structures, non-traditional hanging techniques, and a scroll that is seen in the round.  Over one thousand five hundred individual images will be included, the majority of which are etchings made over a two-decade span.
