Studio Visit with Sheri Tomek and Rachel Gross
here. While she is still using the solar plates to create her prints she has looked backwards to her early graphic design, logo & branding work. The new prints are quite bold- working well up close and from a distance. She has simplified the designs but still uses the mix and match components.Sheri then uses the plates to create various designs. She has currently been using wire to create images on the plates which are reminiscent of tree rings.
Rachel Gross' space is on the other side of the room. There is no clear delineation between the two spaces which speaks to the back and forth process between the Sheri & Rachel. Rachel's most recent prints use plywood shapes as blocks which are then composed in various ways to suggest three dimensional objects. I love the use of the fluorescent colors.
