Medium: Mixed Media
Booth #: LS38C
Artist bio: In her Blues @ Home: Mississippi’s Living Blues Legends project Porter set out to document Mississippi’s legendary storytellers…the living legends of Mississippi bluesmen and women. Her previous project, Backyards and Beyond: Mississippians and Their Stories gave a voice to and spotlighted brave and determined Mississippians after hurricane Katrina.
Artist Statement: I use my original documentary photographs to create a high contrast silkscreen image. I then layer complementary colors of acrylic paint and Prismacolor pencils bringing texture and detail to my narrative mixed media portraits of living blues legends and the landscape that has created them.
