Dog’s Life

Aram Melis - April 2020

April 1 - 30, 2020
Reception: Sun, April 26, 5:00 pm

Show Description/Artist Statement:

The pieces in this collection grew out of studying different printmaking methods, mainly lithography. I used images from visits to my parent’s home in Port Wing, WI, a small town on the south shore of Lake Superior. My parent’s late dog, Tasha, became a reoccurring figure in my work. Her increasing frailty informed the themes of this series: time, aging, place, and being present.
