New Art Blog-New Video-"Prom"

Judith Hladik-Voss has started an art blog.  She will be concentrating on her continuing printmaking projects-along with demos and links to other printmakers and technical information.

My new video-"Prom"

”Prom” explores societal customs/psychological issues/law/sexual exploitation.  
You can view more of the installation on my website:  Tactile Prints>Prom! 
The picture below is the “carpet” section on which the Prom dress and mannequin are installed.  Each fetus is a linocut print on colored silk-backed with felt and hand “sutured” with embroidery floss.  The floss is manipulated with acrylic medium to form the points of the “barbed wire” that has trapped the young women of the Prom.
