On the occasion of the exhibition, Principle of Equivalence, Kemper Museum commissioned capsule collections by six local artists inspired by the work and career of Virginia Jaramillo for the Museum Shop. Each artist drew inspiration from different aspects of Jaramillo's practice and created original works that respond in their own artistic voices.
Handmade in Kansas City by Kelsey Pike of Sustainable Paper+Craft
About the Artist:
"Hello! I'm Kelsey Pike, a papermaker, printmaker, and art teacher in Kansas City, Missouri. Through my business, Sustainable Paper+Craft, I create fine handmade papers and custom, hand-carved rubber stamps. I have been in love with the obscure and tedious art form of hand papermaking since I first tried it in art school in 2009. Turning things like rags and raw plant fibers into paper is a kind of magic! I love the sound of the water, the repetitive motions, the solitude – they put me in a meditative space. My favorite part is peeling the dried sheets and examining them – such a sense of accomplishment. Good craft is important to me and I am continuously studying, practicing and learning to make the best paper. I hope that my paper inspires others to make beautiful things with it."
