Land Studies: New Work By May Babcock ~ AS220 ~ Providence, R.I.
Installation view of the show. These are a series of 5 pulp paintings, measuring approximately 2′ x 4′. I used a base sheet of recycled pulps and Japanese Knotweed fiber. The black pulp is from rag, beaten to a very fine pulp. These are made entirely of paper pulp, but the technique I used isn’t truly ‘pulp painting.’ It’s more like a papermaking version of the monotype…I will post tutorial at my more generically papermaking blog/website, Paperslurry.com.
