2017 Mixed Media Constructions
2017 was a pivotal year in Dede’s work. It was during this time that she fully embraced the experimental by utilizing materials of humble and non-archival quality. She started a series of corrugated cardboard “constructions” which were developed in series of 12-24. The corrugation helped her to see beyond the physicality of the surface, and allow the lines to become part of the visual structure. The resulting works integrate the physicality of applied line, with the application of pigments and other materials in order to develop a cohesive whole.
