For Shapes Print, Beth Abrahamson used Color-Aid paper to create collages inspired by a recent trip to Cuba. The shapes and colors are derived from building facades, and the collages are digitized with the intent of blurring the line between graphic and photographic. The collage compilation is printed on velvety matte paper to replicate the texture of the original material used.
Beth is a graphic designer whose practice combines traditional branding with creative exploration that challenges the distinction between art and design. She is constantly shifting in and out of different mediums—collage, ceramics, photography, drawing—and interested in these moments of transition and how these mediums can shift into the digital world. She thinks of design as the act of configuring puzzle pieces to communicate an idea in a way that is both logical and beautiful. She holds an MFA in Design from California College of the Arts, and is a charter resident of the Minnesota Street Project Studio Program.
