Handmade paper, pulp painting, blowout and kallotype 

"Specimens" presents ghostly Rorschach-like abstracted shapes in a series of white frames. Some of the images are created through blowout papermaking techniques, pulp painted, or use a photographic contact print called a Kallotype. Though three different techniques were used, the black and white palette along with the formal framing create a cohesive installation.
