Works on Paper

Spark takes on the blank page with visual artists who work with, on and through paper.

First, visit Julie Chen as she defies traditional definitions of bookmaking, combining original works of poetry and three-dimensional paper techniques.

Then, explore a new form of printmaking in the studio of Enrique Chagoya as he takes aim at establishment religion and politics with humor that both provokes and amuses.

Finally, Spark takes a sideline seat at Southern Exposure's Monster Drawing Rally in which more than a hundred artists take up pencils, pens and other unlikely drawing tools to create on-the-spot masterpieces.

[Original air date: Wed, Mar 03, 2004]
