Farewell
2015
Mixed media: mineral pigment, laser cut papers, mat boards, typewriter ink and glue on paper
30"x 22" each

%Farewell& series employs the cut-out papers from the laser cutting I did for Water, is Taught by Thirst series. First, I traced waterways from topographical maps of Central Adirondacks, Central Florida and Greater Boston, then removed all the waterways by laser cutting. I saved the cut-out papers from laser cutting process and used these papers for collage. In this body of work, shapes of rivers, ponds, and lakes become abstract images.

I was imagining that our bodies of water were saying good-bye to us, thus the titles of each work begin with “Love,” “Onward and upward,” “Over and out,” and “In solidarity.”

Love, Sunshine
