Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

To make watermarks, Wendy submerges large sheets of paper into various sized and shaped containers of dyed water. The process flows organically as a conversation with both the materials and the elements of design (color, form, line, space, size), where her hand is guiding and allowing, but it’s the water that leaves the mark.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Hopkinton

Based in: New Hampshire

Wendy's watermarks evolved as a reaction against the sterile environment she found as a graphic designer working on the computer with the expectations of perfection that are a part of creating with today’s technology. While staying true to her roots as a designer, she found a more sensual process of working—one that connected heart, head, and hands, while also serving as a method for expressing her lived experience.

To make watermarks, she submerges large sheets of paper into various sized and shaped containers of dyed water. The process flows organically as a conversation with both the materials and the elements of design (color, form, line, space, size), where her hand is guiding and allowing, but it’s the water that leaves the mark. This imperfect and unpredictable process allows for surprises and is a practice in giving up control and working with the way things are. For her, the marks become visual representations of a felt experience; and also a bit like a Rorschach test because they can be many different things to the viewer.
