slippages – Paintings Carruthers, Deborah


27 sheets of 18” x 24” bespoke St-Armand cotton paper. Medium: acrylic ink in hues of yellows, blues, and greys similar to those observed by the artist during her fieldwork at Athabasca Glacier, Alberta, Canada. The artist arranged for each sheet to be articulated with random perforations so that when the sheets are stacked they would mimic the layers of a glacier and serve as a metaphor for the glacier’s history as it melts consequent to climate change.
