Embossed started in the DUSK print studio by embossing paper in a consistent pattern. Designed and embossed by Ky Anderson the pattern was intended to complement each artists' work while still challenging them, but subtle enough to not dominate the work. Some embraced the pattern, some found it wildly inspiring, some wanted more paper, some ignored the pattern while some repeated it, some struggled and some rejected the surface altogether and pulled out of the show. This series is a result of a group of artists with a knowledge and respect of one another’s work. While there are multiple approaches to the work the artists have allowed themselves to be further connected to one another by engaging in the consistency of the size and texture as their starting point.
Embossed artist include Shane Drinkwater, Brian Edmonds, Sarajo Frieden, Benjamin Gardner, Yifat Gat, J Grabowski, Molly Herman, Michael Krueger, Emily Noelle Lambert, Meg Lipke, Jason Rohlf, Mason Saltarrelli, Ward Schumaker, Vicki Sher and Debra Smith.
