Dog’s Life

Aram Melis - December 2021

December 1 - 31, 2021

Show Description/Artist Statement:

The pieces in this collection grew out of exploring different non-toxic printmaking techniques with Professor Alan Luft at Edgewood College. 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.

This show was originally scheduled to be displayed in April 2020. Thank you to Mother Fools for extending the invitation to return. I am grateful for the opportunity to still share this work with you as I had intended then.
