Spineless
2020
60 x 30”
Cyanotype print on muslin and cheesecloth

Spineless is an exploration of merging the process of print media with sculpture; finding the parallels within the process while transcending Backbone (2018), one of her previous works into another medium. Cyanotype is a print process created through light exposure, capturing the negative image of the shadow created. The absence of the backbone fortifies the spineless nature. The context is contrasted through subject and materiality; from the solid forged metal to the light fragile nature of the fabric.
