Christi Birchfield '06

Birchfield looks to both the natural and mechanical world in efforts to create her own nature morte that is anything but lifeless. She pushes the limitations of her chosen medium, transforming the act of printmaking into a performative juxtaposition of destruction and delicacy. The printing press transforms organic materials through their own destruction as they become one with the surface. Her writhing designs find a delicate combination of chaos and harmony, emphasizing symmetry yet embracing the unexpectedness of the printing process. “Invested in the unique stains and texture each run produces, I am distanced again by the insensitive and aggressive act of making,” Birchfield explains.
