Moses Brown School, Providence
Memories and Transformation
Each of the artists of 19 on Paper have approached the theme of the exhibition, Memory and Transformation, in a unique way whether it be through subject matter, process or concept. For some artists, their art preserves personal memories of special places and experiences, while for others, the memories are from a distant, cultural or historical past.
The act of creating an image on paper is a transformative one. In this exhibit are examples of artists transforming reality based experiences into abstract images, transforming visual reality through process or subjective interpretation, or transforming materials from one form to another.
