Article/Art In Cleveland Presents Becky Grasser: Halfway
Halfway, gum bichromate prints by Becky Grasser, explores her shifting experience of time and space through past, present and future as a result of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is a mental health condition triggered by witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event.
“The images are, on the surface, images of bridges in various states of being built, crumbling, and being rebuilt,” Grasser says. “These bridges then form a metaphor, a physical realization, of the struggles I face each day while living with PTSD. The images provide a visual interpretation of the way I see and feel. Some days are clear and crisp, others have messy beginnings and uncertain endings. By combining multiple printing methods, the viewer is shifted through time and space, through real and unreal, to see what I feel while navigating an uncertain future.”
Becky Grasser is a professor of Information Technology and Computer Science at Lakeland Community College. Her career has also included work in engineering, business administration, fine arts and the U.S. Air Force.
Article/Art In Cleveland is a gallery and studio/art classroom in the Waterloo Arts District with a mission to present, promote and mentor emerging artists in a creative work and exhibition environment.
