Apprentice Progression Methodology

pencil, paper, board, medical tape, staples, drywall
Apprentice Progression Methodology depicts a human leg, a tree branch, and an antique furniture leg—rendered in heavily layered graphite silhouette. The images are bound, repaired by medical tape; the drawing stapled to broken segments of drywall. Shpungin uses her fathers’ subject matter and methods and translates them into her own artistic practice as a form of apprenticeship and commemoration.
