E.V. Day Exhibitions in NYC
The incomparable artist, E.V. Day, has two exhibitions opening in the coming weeks. If you are in NY, check them out. Day participated in Dieu Donné's Lab Grant Residency Program. I was fortunate enough to collaborate with E.V. during her time in the studio. Over the course of a year, we developed a new technique of pigmenting fishnet bodysuits under tension, and pressing them into thick sheets of handmade cotton paper. The end result is a pigment transfer and embossing, which creates a trompe l'oeil affect. We took the work to the Armory fair last year, and most viewers commented that they thought the fishnets were still in the paper!
You can see E.V. working in the studio:
October 15 - November 25
Opening reception for the artist October 15,
Shazam - Red and Blue, 2009. Fishnet bodysuit
pigment embossing on cotton base sheet.
60 x 40 inches. Collaborator: Catherine Cox
assisted by Akemi Martin.
Dieu Donné is pleased to announce an exhibition
of new work from E.V. Day's Lab Grant residency.
The vibrant pieces are created using an
innovative technique of embossing pigmented
fishnets into thick casting paper pulp, and are
true realizations of Day's sculptural practice
in a two dimensional form.
