Landing Gallery

This work was from the two person exhibition with Kristen Fitzpatrick and Ellen Roberts entitled “New Artists Exhibit” at the Landing Gallery in Rockland Maine.  Roberts work consisted of about seventeen pieces most of the pieces were primarily paper prints collaged and stitched together with fabric and other materials.  In these works the subject matter included the themes of water and the seasons.  There were groups of pieces where Roberts stayed primarily with multiples of three different sized squares.

These prints were created on an etching press. Roberts’ approach to working is an open, playful activity which lends itself to a sequence of decisions made through observations as she works. Later Roberts draws back into the printed grounds with machine stitching.
