A Stroll Through Jamaica Plain

In 2016 I received a grant for public art for the newly renovated Boston Public Library Jamaica Plain branch. I was one of three artists who were so honored to have their work displayed permanently in the public space.

As a resident of the neighborhood, and a frequent visitor of the library, I chose to base my art on the neighborhood that I had grown to love in the years I had lived there. I created a sequence of images that depict a human element against a backdrop of an iconic architectural feature of the South/Centre Street area of Jamaica Plain.

 

 

In combination, the intended effect was to capture the visual experience of a “stroll” through our unique neighborhood.

 

 

Each monoprint of the triptych was generated using printmaking techniques such as woodblock and chine collé on paper, printed on mulberry paper, and mounted on wooden panels measuring 18″ by 24″. These works are the largest I have worked on and were printed by hand using a baren.
