302. Kristy Darnell Battani


Acrylic, oil, resin, discarded ephemera


I work with outdated textual materials—abandoned manuals, maps, directories, and ledgers. I see these materials as threads weaving our past with our present, disintegrating with the passage of time as the concepts in those materials are replaced with newer ideas and technologies. I use many layers of the tattered pieces of these forgotten texts to create abstract textile imagery.
