Naked Abandon : Self-Portraits a magazine by Sarah Bloom

Naked Abandon : Self-Portraits a magazine by Sarah Bloom
publication
Sarah Bloom has been taking self-portraits as her primary form of artistic expression since 2006. The exploration of identity as a woman entering middle age has emerged as a persistent theme in her work, most expressively with her self-portraits in abandoned places. Akin to the stages of grief, she faces the idea of aging at first with dread, then resistance, and ultimately acceptance. In her experience, these stages are non-linear.
 
Sarah R. Bloom is an artist and photographer working in the Philadelphia region.

Inspired by Broad’s recent artist residency in Iceland, Greater Than Less Than represents a dynamic collaboration with the extremes of nature – ice, wind, and fire – and Iceland’s inhabitants’ strength of spirit. To parallel nature’s impact on the work, concepts are revealed with bold graphic forms. Some pigments were ground from lava rock and other Icelandic minerals. Colors are primary and contrasting.

Clay Monoprints: Dreams, Visions, and Alternate Realities. An Exhibit of Works by Susan Richards

Clay monoprinting is my joy and my passion.  It is a unique form of image transfer developed by Mitch Lyons, who I am fortunate enough to study with. The printing 'plate' is a clay slab. Color is applied with clay slip to which pigments have been added. Layers of texture using all kinds of materials can be added. The 'paper' is a synthetic interfacing material called Reemay 2470. When placed over the design and hand rubbed with a pony roller, a print from the slab is transferred to the two-dimensional material.
