Nostalgic Pavements/2013

Nostalgic Pavements is a mini series of large works created in 2013 on Arches Hot Press paper, stretched on stretcher bars so that I could move them around as I would a work on panel. The large format and the capacity of the paper to handle mechanical sanding and getting very wet allowed great discovery. The works have since been cut off the stretchers and framed. It was a time of political controversy in Wisconsin and a lot of aid that was much needed for my daughter was being cut or on the table to be cut. I was looking back to what i thought was a sweeter time, relating it all to a song by 10,000 Maniacs.
