ABOUT THE ARTIST

Maria Helena was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. Her work stems from her life-long passion for travel and photography. She translates her photographs into a variety of artistic mediums: wood sculpture, intaglio, woodcut and linoleum. At American University, she studied printmaking under Alyssa Pheobus and, sculpture with Andy Holtin. She has an MA in International Relations and Economics from Johns Hopkins University (SAIS). She has studied papermaking at the Museo de la Carta e della Filigrana and intaglio with Roberto Stellutin in Fabriano, Italy. Her work has been exhibited at The Corcoran Gallery of Art, The World Bank, Poltrona Frau and the Cosmos Club. Her intent for Shifting Earth is clear. In times of change, Maria Helena turns to the stability of monument; man-made, natural and dreamscape. She presents different perspectives of the same image, thus making the medium part of the visual experience.

 

Lisa Grand Murphy is an artist, practicing and teaching in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Primarily a printmaker and photographer, she teaches art classes and workshops at Strathmore Museum of Art, Glen Echo Park Arts Center, Fox Hill Senior Center, and in her home studio. A University of Maryland graduate with a MA in Communications, she has exhibited her work at New Hampshire’s Karl Drerup Art Gallery, Plymouth State University, Glen Echo Park, Photoworks Gallery and Pyramid Atlantic Art Center. Shifting Earth poses a question, “In times of change, what remains true?” Her print series, “A Family of Saints” is her artistic response to this question. As her political and social worlds shift, she turns to family. She creates anchors to generations past with bold of-the-moment reduction linocut prints of family members; personal modern saints that offer truth, wisdom and guidance for these changing times.
