Brooklyn-based artist Shanti Grumbine (BFA 2000) recently spoke with DailyServing about her art practice that deconstructs and transforms printmedia and journalistic sources. Grumbine uses discarded copies of the New York Times to create new modes of visual and metaphorical messages. According to her, “the idea of the newspaper originally comes from a very democratic gesture of accessibility—a vehicle of and for the commons. My use of the New York Times is fraught with conflicting desires, commemorations, and criticisms.”
Grumbine is currently a Marshall Frankel Fellow at the Vermont Studio Center.
