Buttons and Navels

Artist: 
Sarka Buchl Stephenson
Date: 
September 1, 2007 to October 14, 2007

In the exhibition Buttons & Navels Buchl Stephenson explores the role of the button in her life and her memories associated with it, through a series of original prints. Using two printmaking techniques, drypoint and stencil, Buchl Stephenson tells us the story of her relationship with the button. The prints show details of buttons on clothing and the body. The artist uses different colour combinations to create contrast and serenity while her style, use of line, and subject matter maintain a playful narrative.
