Lot 96 - Emerging Collector Pick
Heather J.A. Thomson
Papiermark Composition 1
Photo-lithograph with Chine-collé
14" x 11"
Heather feels discussions of hyperinflation Germany focus on statistics and disregard the physicality of currency. The Papiermark was used by people during the inflation and she believes the banknotes are objects with stories to tell. Heather’s multilayered approach to creating Papiermark pieces involves seven or more photo-lithography layers. Through interacting with her pieces, Heather invites viewers to observe minute details and hopes Papiermarks can move beyond their statistical value.
