About

Brody focuses on the creation of site-generated works of art that illuminate the unobserved in our day to day surroundings and the challenges facing our environment.The artist is intrigued by the process of creating a controlled environment where the work organically develops and changes over time. This form of artistic creation represents the constant state of entropy we live in, and how the delicate characteristics of memory and time can both erode and enhance our interpretations of experience.

On view for Excessive Frugality are a series of Paper Cones produced after draining out the pulp left over from making paper. The pulps are from a range of projects, which use various types of fibers. The natural flax, cotton, and abaca cones are mainly from her “Drawing Roots” series, which incorporates the sprouting of seeds as a form of mark making. The hand-dyed pulps are from experiments with watermarking, and the more rough textured pulps of oolong tea, rye grass, and onion skin are from a new series titled “ Papers of Place.” All of these works are part of a studio process based on maintaining sustainable living practices within an environment that have been irrevocably altered by human industrialism.
