Francesca Pastine: ArtForum Excavations

Artist Francesca Pastine creates beautiful sculptural interventions using ARTFORUM magazines as her medium.The cut magazines are made by working through the pages, cutting around the paper until the only parts remaining are what she chooses. Speaking about her work, Francesca said, "Maintaining a strong connection to the physicality of drawing, my X-acto blade mimics a pencil. I eschew glue or other manipulations that change the inherent character of the magazines. In this way, they retain their association to what they are, carriers of information that have been handled, earmarked and scuffed over time."
