This work invites viewers to consider the potential in the everyday. Ordinary moments often have sliver of beauty embedded in them, something wondrous peeking through if we view things at the right angle. Ordinary objects have parallel potential, always at hand and ready to reimagined. Creative work has the power to transform us, and this work is an invitation to rediscover the potential in the everyday materials already at your fingertips. What wonderful worlds can be made when you rediscover the everyday and transform it?
Amy S. Broderick uses forgotten photographs, discarded office supplies, found atlases, and related ephemera to make complex paper compositions. She cuts and weaves each page by hand to make elaborate layered structures and images. Her process marks time’s passing, as forgotten slivers of other people's daily lives coalesce to tell new tales. The resulting work invites viewers to imagine a space where obsolescence and disconnection become the warp and weft of new territories.
