Annie Briard’s Paracosm P - The Fabric is printed on metallic paper and is from a larger series of work that was produced while visiting the southern coast of Spain. Her series looks to a poetic theory of the eye surmising that our eye sees through a small crystal and mediates what we see while our imagination fills in the blanks.
