Open Studio From Home: Sari Dienes
Embracing the streets of downtown Manhattan as her studio, Sari Dienes used ink brayers and large rolls of paper or Webril (a cotton-based material used in the medical industry) to create rubbings, capturing the striking impressions of subway grates, pavement cracks, and maintenance hole covers. In H.P.F.S., named after the abbreviation for “high pressure fire service” pictured in the composition, Dienes recorded the textures of the city she was drawn to.

Together, we will examine the various surfaces that exist in our surroundings––like the woven fibers of a blanket or the delicate leaves of a house plant. Then we will create a composition of rubbings from the textures in our homes!

Materials:
––Thin paper like printer paper or tracing paper
––Thick paper like cardstock or watercolor paper
––Tape
––Scissors
––Glue stick
––Color options (Crayons, Chalk, Oil pastels)
