Mulberry Paper (Hanji), Bees Wax, Baltic Birch
Series 2016-6 is an example of how strips of two or three layers of the Hanji are fused together while also making a random lattice pattern. A Layer of lighter weight paper is added for texture and visual interest. The cord is hand rolled Hanji, incorporated into the artwork while the fusing with water is taking place. Even though the artwork and papers may look delicate, the papers are very strong and durable due to the strength of the fibrous mulberry plant.
Joomchi is a 500-year-old Korean paper-making technique that uses water to fuse several layers of handmade mulberry papers (Hanji) together. PJ Bergin is bringing her unique artistic sensibility to this ancient medium.
