Fold the world in half at your eye by Lindsey Clark-Ryan…

This work uses the horizon as a starting point to explore the relationship between printmaking, paper, and how we conceive of space. The horizon can be, among many other things, an easy shorthand for landscape, a charged moment of awareness during navigation, the contrast of two planes trying to coexist in our vision. I’m interested in the way my vision can become image-oriented or picture-oriented relative to the equipment and processes I have available to mediate it, e.g. phone cameras or printing presses.

The shapes present throughout the prints in this installation are drawn from las tipas growing throughout Buenos Aires. The forms are defined by the edges of tall canopies exhibiting crown shyness, the gaps where the upper branches hesitate to touch. It’s evocative, partly due to the tension at the edge that seems to belie the slow, overlapping growth of the trees. As a group, these contours also imply river deltas or geographical borders, so the point of view might be looking up, down, or across.

In this installation I focused on how the printmaking process—through layering, folds, and display relationships—can express both the tautness and delicacy of experience and, eventually, communication. I am always interested in the behavior of paper and its relationship to pressure, atmosphere, or gravity. Further, working with stencil and monotype on folded paper allowed for adaptation and flexibility, but required continuous diagramming and calculation that a fixed matrix would not. In this way, the tenuousness and constant reorientation was embodied in the process.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
