Candida Pagan

Artist Statement: 

Using the media suitable to the idea, I make installation, sculpture, drawings, paintings, prints, and artist's books. I use unique and variable edition artist's books to respond to an idea or place, or to record a period of time. I am also the artist behind Digraph Press, a literary fine press, publishing new work by emerging authors and poets. The pieces in this show are tied to a larger narrative theme, looking for connections between our terrestrial existence and its cosmological environment--asking questions about knowledge and the link between what we find familiar and what we find unfamiliar, alienated from our understood experience. I produced the various styles of handmade paper used in these pieces, which was the theoretical and material base from which I started my exploration.
