This exhibition of features current and in-process work by five MCBA co-op artists: Sally Power, Darius Homayounpour, Paul Nylander, Richard Stephens, and Emily Umentum. With a focus on process, the exhibition showcases various aspects of the book arts and the many steps it takes to go from an idea to a finished work of art.
Sally Power and Darius Homayounpour work with paper marbling and experiment with how floating paints on water evolves with changing materials. Paul Nylander works back and forth between analog and digital printmaking with his polymer photogravure prints. Richard Stephens’ pieces show his working process from colored pencil drawings to carved linoblocks and letterpress prints. Emily Umentum’s work moves from design sketches to leather bindings with gold tooling.
