ROLLED PAPER WORKS
The Spiral Reads Series were all started after Rosette Spectra, made in 2011. I created Letters of Sacrifice and any other rolled paper works after. All of the works below are from a series where I took Texas newspapers and found color from the articles in the pages. There are no painted spirals, these are all found color. When searching through the pages of the Austin Chronicle, The Austin Statesman, The Dallas Morning News and etc., it is as if I am finding treasure, looked over by all of you. I use them as a mosaic to create these works for my viewers to ponder as to what these even are. I fold and roll, fold and roll, fold and roll. It is cathartic for me, bringing me a sense of purpose to find a beautiful use for the paper after we are through with it.
