April 17 – May 19, 2017
Reception Thursday, April 20, 6-8pm
Cincinnati-based paper artist Emily Moores presented a site-specific installation called Cathedral. Regarding her work, Moores says, “I cut, fold, and roll to transform paper into dense textures or towering structures. By hand cutting each shape, the repetition within the forms is not identical. The slight variation adds a tactile quality to the paper structures.” She continues, “I use the limited nature of installation combined with the sensory experience of my ornamental paper constructions to focus attention on the present moment in time.”
Moores earned a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP), and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Art. She currently serves as Development Coordinator at Churches Active in Northside, a Cincinnati-area food pantry.
