Miranda Art Project Space is pleased to present Exchanges on Paper, a group exhibition curated by Nadia Martinez, featuring works by Teresa Waterman, Esther Rosa, Michelle Bratsafolis, and Kathryn Cameron. All the artists in this exhibition work with paper in various forms, using different techniques to bring their visions to fruition.

Exchanges on Paper highlights the significant role and variety of forms paper has taken over time in the world of fine arts. This show features a range of disciplines including drawing, alternative photography, sculpture, and painting. Each discipline is represented through the use of various media and techniques including encaustic, cyanotype, metal leaf gilding, casting from paper pulp, and painting with mixed media. Age-old methods are combined with contemporary sensibilities so that ideas and materials converge, resulting in a transformation of traditional media into modern artistic expressions. Time is the invisible thread that unifies all the artworks in the exhibition. Its passage is a catalyst acting upon the materials chosen at the start of each process, nudging them forward, sometimes resulting in a wholesale change of the raw materials used, and sometimes effecting a more subtle alteration.
