Josias Figueirido joined SSP in the summer of 2018 as our CRE Fellow. Here is his description of what we have to look forward to regarding the work he made during his time at SSP:

“During my fellowship at Second State Press, I focused on constructing invented narratives that emerged from merging different images. I combined and overlapped various printmaking methods, such as screen-printing, woodblocks, and monotypes. Although each print was unique, I used the same images repeatedly, repositioning them in order to come up with different spatial organizations and new narratives. From the beginning my project was constantly changing, to the point that I ended up making works that were quite different from what I originally intended. After the fellowship, I continued to work on the prints by collaging photographs, rhinestones, glitter, and other objects on them. I also cut through the prints in order to form patterns, and I continued to develop the narratives by painting on them. The final mixed media works speak of topics related to information overload and the struggles we face in separating digital and real spaces when forming an understanding of reality.”
