“Colleen Ho's Ripped Paper Drawings employ a meditative process of texturing the paper with a needle and thumbtack repeatedly, leaving a delicate, tactile relief to the surface. The elevated topography Colleen creates results in a sophisticated and contemporary work that brings visual intrigue inviting you to look closer. In her works there is nothing added or taken away from the original paper medium, and the paper is never punctured, only the surface is disrupted.”
Colleen Ho (b. 1971) creates drawings which allude to patterns and structures visible in nature. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, from New York and Louisiana to Korea.Read Full Bio
