After several trips to visit family in Utah, Texas, and Florida last year, Jennifer Davies stayed put, looking out over Long Island Sound and working in her garden. She also worked on large-scale papermaking in the yard, creating pieces for her solo show this past February at City Gallery in New Haven. The exhibit includes sewn collage of Japanese papers that Jennifer describes as, “printed from those loopy black tar lines that repair cracks in parking lots. Believe me, you have to abandon all pride to sit out there and print the asphalt—one of the good things about being 70! I made all the paper in the show from mulberry stalks, taking over the whole back yard.”
