How To Fall Apart and Come Back Together: flat print
How to Fall Apart and Come Back Together is a four color screenprint, originally created as part of an installation at Neon Raspberry Gallery in Occidental, CA.
This print invites us to explore our capacity to transform.
While falling apart is typically marked by loss, grief, and distress, this piece gently asks us what if we allowed ourselves to come undone. With the tarot card ‘The Tower,’ a building crumbles to reveal the unsteady parts of its foundations and to allow for a new and stronger building to be rebuilt.
This fortune teller asks us what can we shed? What old parts of ourselves no longer serve us? What new forms can we envision for ourselves in their stead? Following in the footsteps of our queer and trans fungal and plant kin, we can shapeshift and transform. This fortune teller is an art piece, print, and piece of queer magic which asks us to make space to pause and reimagine reimagine ourselves beyond the limits of our body.
This piece is 18" x 18". I screenprinted it this winter in metallic gold, white, light pink, and black on black french paper.
This listing is just for the flat print. There is a separate listing for the folded version, which is a fortune teller.
I have a few misprints with slight imperfections that do not effect the overall design.
