Exhibit preview: Artist Jenny Fine uses cardboard cutouts of grandmother in latest show

From the April 24, 2014 edition

Jenny Fine uses her art as a way to show respect and love for her lost family members.

She creates cardboard cutouts made from images she took of her grandmother during the last decade of her grandmother’s life, and then poses them in a variety of settings, from the intimate to the surreal, for powerful photographs and mixed media works.

The output conveys tender moments of familial sentiment as well as extraordinary dreamlike landscapes.

An artist reception will be held April 29.
