Paper quillwork has exploded into Tuchman's new series — atmospheric poetry of colorful vistas seen traveling, both real and arm-chair. Thousands of pieces of papers are colored, painted, hand-cut, twirled and assembled into landscapes and skyscapes upon an eye-shadow ground, creating an abstraction of memories.

About the Author

ELLEN FRANCES TUCHMAN
eftuchman Dallas, Texas

As a child, I deeply loved the Ice Capades and circus costumes – spectacle, color, general exuberance, a joy of surface. I am haunted by the mirrored house I saw at LACMA and Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” ride, with its screwy-colored flora. The counterpoints of paint/beads, digital imagery/hand-sewn embellishment exist in my carefully constructed narratives. A wealth of fanciful materials continues to serve as my palette; nostalgia becomes a vehicle for marking time, with painstaking and obsessively crafted moments showing a portal to our romanticized past.
