Artists have a wealth of options when it comes to the technology and materials used to create their art. Pulp explores the energy and mystery of one choice – paper. For an artist, a sheet of paper can be the beginning of a journey that lasts a lifetime. Paper, specifically fine art paper, comes in a variety of physical characteristics: smooth or rough, thick or thin, opaque or transparent, each suiting different needs of the artist using it. Pulp goes beyond the subject matter and explores how the medium itself influences the creative direction of each piece of art. The show features 26 contemporary works on paper from the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites permanent collection.
