Artist Reception: October 13, 2017, 5:30-8:00pm
Artist Dialogue @ 6:30pm
Milwaukee-based artists, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger and Marna Goldstein Brauner combine technologies of printmaking with fibrous materials such as paper and fabric to create new visual representations of space and site. Both artists explore cultures through traveling and making, through examining the environment via mediation, process, and materials. They obsessively photograph, draw and collect specimens, sourced near and far–from Milwaukee to distant locations including South Korea, Japan, Mexico, Italy, and India. Drawing from a repository of gathered materials, they re-imagine and synthesize place through printing, stitching, assembling, and fusing together elements into multi-dimensional forms, objects, and environments. In an emerging, collaborative body of work titled Wall Paper, Meuninck-Ganger and Goldstein Brauner combine their stylistic approaches to create an environment that includes a long, dimensional wall-scape and free-standing objects.
