Im excited to introduce another artist involved in the project, Victoria Marie Barquin! She will be creating beautiful prints to go along with all three guidelines! I am very excited to collaborate with her, and see what she creates with the images of jewelry made as well as her own creative touch.
"My contribution to the Guidelines project is a suite of three, 18 x 24 inch screenprints that represent and respond to the work being made under each assignment. The prints will be included in the exhibition phase of the project as well as in promotional and marketing materials. All of the prints will be available for purchase.
Aside from making prints, collaborating with other artists is one of my greatest passions. There is so much to learn from the way another maker thinks and produces—especially if they work predominantly in another medium. I’ve had the immense pleasure of collaborating with Brie, Franko and Dan before and I’m so excited to work together again."
Victoria Marie Barquin (b. 1993) grew up in Cranbury, New Jersey and received her BFA in Printmaking from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2016. Barquin’s work meditates on the reciprocal relationship between past and present, juxtaposing old and new—analog and digital. She is currently working on a project inspired by the visual impact of walls, tiles, tags and graffiti, which highlights the intersection of text, image and architecture. Her work has been shown at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative and Spudnik Press in Chicago, where she is currently based, in addition to A R E A Gallery and Lens Gallery in Boston.
