The four artists of Paperscapes explore the possibilities of paper as a medium that straddles the divide between the analog past of print and our current digital age. Using a mixture of traditional and experimental techniques, these artists create immersive environments that challenge our traditional understanding of paper as simply a vehicle for the printed word. Incorporating light, shadow, sound, and texture, the works of Paperscapes respond to the architectural setting of the Art Alliance, transforming its turn-of-the-century domestic interior into an otherworldly space.
