Papers Of Place

2017 - present

Locally gathered seasonal detritus regenerated into pulp to form sheets of handmade paper collages that represent a place of personal residence in both imagery and material make-up.

Integrating site-specific process-oriented paper making, Michele Brody addresses questions of localness, the natural world, and plant indigenousness. At her recent exhibition at St. Michael’s College in Vermont, presented in partnership with ecoartspace, Michele’s work reflects on both biodiversity and its loss. As a papermaker, her topic is the very fiber of her art and study whether in Vermont or in the Bronx. Her international experience has created a portfolio and knowledge base that truly embodies the idea of the “GLocal”. Olivia Ann Carye Hallstein, Fibers of Place: Michele Brody reconstructs local plants into visual reflections,
