“Poison-Antidote” was created as a senior thesis body of work when finishing my degree in Studio Art at Salem College. While my concentration was in Printmaking, I began a new medium that year –paper cutting. The main piece was an installation titled, “Super Creeps.”

The installation covered three gallery walls and the silhouette of the largest image, a giant scorpion, wrapped onto the floor and 12 ft. high ceiling. The dimensions of the scorpion were 13’ x 20’, and the work as a whole was 60’ in length.

“Super Creeps” was on exhibit for one month only in Mary Davis Holt Gallery-Elberson Fine Arts Center, Winston-Salem, NC(May 2013).

An overhead projector was used to cast the image of the original small paper cut-out onto the back siding of the vinyl. The outlines were traced with a grease pencil.

The negative areas of the drawing were then cut away with precision, using utility knives on top of a cutting mat.

All of the giant scorpion image was projected onto the backside of the vinyl as well, and cut out with scissors.

Secure placement with tape, carefully and painstakingly peel the backing away from the vinyl as I rubbed onto wall with my hands and a squeegee. This process took 8 hours!

The unique quality of this art work is that it is temporary. In the removal from walls, it is all destroyed. For this particular piece, I was prepared to let it go, as the destruction of the poisonous entity was reduced to its ultimate harmlessness. The installation can be revisited, however, through the photos taken.
