Scrapworks

During to the COVID-19 shutdown, Ratcliff was unable to work with the collaborator who produces her large scale digital prints for kinetic sculptures. She turned instead to her own studio resources and found stacks of scraps with traces of digital printing on them–circles, corners and straight trimmings left over from earlier works, some of them saved for years. The results are an entirely new series: ScrapWorks.
