Elizabeth Mead's sculpture and drawings have been exhibited across the U.S. as well as in Australia, England, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Portugal, and Taiwan . She has designed more than two-dozen theatrical productions including work with the internationally acclaimed, Tony award winning Theatre de la Jeune Lune. She has had over two-dozen solo exhibitions and her sculpture and drawing have been included in more than fifty group exhibitions.
My two most recent projects, signatures and thoughts, push the boundaries of what constitutes a sculpture or drawing. This has always been a concern for me but this project is taking things in new directions. The signatures use folded paper, the edges butting up one to the other as in the gutter of a book. In them an ink image projects a landscape-space that vies with the sculptural form of the folded papers. thoughts, a series of small porcelain pieces, reverse the project as light transmitted through the thin porcelain lights up surfaces and radiates along the edges of gaps in the forms letting the edges become lines as in a drawing.
