dc.description.abstractAn overview of Carolyn Topper’s SIP, methods, and brief explanation of prior work. Works initially include illustrations and text about everyday life, and evolve into conceptual work that critiques meaning and interpretation of images and words as faulty means of communication. Made with simple materials such as muslin, polyester, aloe gel, ink, and starch, and methods are ironing and applying ink with calligraphy brushes. Makes reference to Magritte and Baldessari, but not created because of either. Explores puns, duality, and text as form of deception. Uses humor.en_US
