This brief animation was part of the exhibition PINK PEARL at the Gladstone Hotel in December 2011.
Print media is often characterized by a material emphasis on subtraction and addition. As a dug hole is mirrored by the mound of dirt it unearths, any removal of material from the surface of a print matrix implies an accumulation elsewhere. What meaning can be found in those liminal spaces between minus and plus? Works in PINK PEARL move past surface engagements with etched plates, burned screens, grained stones, carved wood and cut paper to explore the concepts of erasure and transcendence. Using print as a primary strategy, artists in PINK PEARL create 2-dimensional works on paper, artist books, material arts, sculpture, and animation.
