Reliquary|Found Bodies Series, 2012 – 2015

Lace is a collector of things. From dead insects to broken stained glass to redundant encyclopedia. Lace keeps them with her until it’s time to process them into artworks. The remains of these processes often result in a reliquary.

When Lace embosses dead insects into paper she is often able to save the wings and bodies turned to dust after going through the etching press. She arranges these remains into patterns.Reliquary  Reliquary I
