Shanti Grumbine

Between the Lines

PRESENTED ON MAR 15, 2016
IN BEACON @ VOL 5

"I began this series of newspaper cuts called Kenosis in 2011, after being diagnosed with late stage of Lyme disease. I wanted to engage with the world, but felt very isolated, so I grabbed New York Times. And because reading was difficult, I removed the words instead, because what we read affect how we see, so I started altering images as well."

In Between the Lines from PechaKucha Night Beacon Vol. 5, artists Shanti Grumbine talks about how her experience with Lyme disease changed her artistic process to examine what's not there... by manipulating the NYTimes to show what shadows can reveal.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, June 7th, 2016.

Cutting Pages

BY CHARLENE ASATO
@ VOL 19 ON DEC 13, 2013

Charlene Asato joins us from the Big Island and has enjoyed creating with paper for many years. She finds it very exciting that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form and artist’s books provide a wonderful avenue to convey this energy.

A Paper Tale

BY JACKY CHENG
