PAPER AS SUBJECT AND MEDIA

For Artist Fidencio Fifield-Perez, cutting paper is one of the first steps in expanding the possibilities of mark-making and generating ideas for subsequent series. In the workshop, participants are introduced to processes of manipulating paper, creating weavings, and making stencils, and will explore and expand their use of paper as substrate and matrix to create one-of-a-kind monotypes. Paper, x-actos, and other materials that participants will weave and collage together will be provided. This free workshop is in conjunction with Fidencio’s Highpoint exhibition, On Looking.
About the Instructor: Fidencio Fifield-Perez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, but raised in the U.S. after his family migrated. His current work examines borders, edges, and the people who must traverse them. In his work, Fifield-Perez’s interdisciplinary practice centers on the materiality of paper ephemera, everyday self-documents discarded after fulfilling their purpose. For Fifield-Perez, printmaking, collage, and painting are ways to visualize and connect mental landscapes of the past and present.
Fidencio Fifield-Perez received his BFA from Memphis College of Art and an MA & MFA from The University of Iowa. He has exhibited at multiple institutions, including The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, and the International Print Center New York. He has completed artist residencies at The Studios at MASS MoCA, Ox-Bow, ACRE, Crosstown Arts, and the Galveston Artist Residency, among others. He has been awarded The Eliza Moore Fellowship at Oak Spring Garden Foundation. He is currently one of the inaugural Dr. Harold R. Adams Artist-in-Residence Fellows at The University of Minnesota.
