Casper Art Walk – The Nicolaysen Art Museum
Invasive Paper IV exhibit reception from. “The nature of turning something that is of little to no interest or detested by much of the population into something beautiful with a new life is interesting to me. My reasoning for choosing to use invasive species had to do with the abundant nature and overall hatred of the invasive plants. I have yet to experience someone who is not excited about the prospect of getting the weeds off of their property. After the first iteration of the Invasive Paper show, I had one of the participating artists approach me and tell me how much he loved working with the material. He explained that the material was so different and unexpected that any pre-planning or ties to his previous research had to be let go of and that he thought the paper had helped him to break out of some patterns that he had fallen into in his work. This, or similar stories have arisen from each of the subsequent shows.” - Sukha Worob, Artist & Exhibit Organizer
