Laurie Alpert’s mixed media prints incorporate a 500-year-old Korean papermaking technique called Joomchi. She is fascinated by this process, and has since integrated it into her work. The images begin with photographs that she’s taken of seemingly mundane things. The origin is inconsequential – it is the alteration that gives the image its new life.
