Vic Barquin

Resiliency Forms

Vic Barquin used her artist in residency to make a collection of large scale paper sculptures reminiscent of natural forms. These biomorphic pieces encouraged the viewer to think about personal sustainability, from both an emotional and economic standpoint. She became interested in working with paper in this way during the pandemic. To reduce material expenses, she started cutting up old work and making new collages. These paper sculptures were constructed from the scraps of the scraps, along with junk mail and other recycled materials.
