Space/Craft is a group exhibition comprised of the work by Tomoko Abe, Liz Surbeck Biddle, Ellen Hackl Fagan, and Jackie Welsh. The four artists participating in the exhibition met at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY a few years back. The connection between their work was created by their joint interests in experimentation, playfulness, and testing the limits of clay.
Ceramics was the original anchor that soon became a jumping off point into other media such as cyanotype and paper. Abe and Surbeck Biddle use the process of the cyanotype on both ceramic and paper. Welsh’s pieces are made from ceramic coated chicken wire with printed ceramic transfer images. Hackl Fagan places objects on museum board and floods them with paint in order to create a print-like image, similar to a cyanotype but without using photosensitive chemicals.
