Gift Wrapping Paper Design: “Wrapping” at LMAK

The artists have created a variety of giftwrapping papers: Allie Yacina undertook the impressive job to hand-paint 10 rolls of giftwrap for the show; Josh Egnew exchanged skin for paper and created his iconic tattoo motives; Alissa Polan extended her practice of collage, photography and sculpture in which she examines society’s proclivity to equate nature with consumption, affluence and capitalism to gift wrapping paper; Kate Hawkins created an important series of gift wrapping paper, titled Protect the Pots which alludes to ideas of broken civilizations. David B. Smith creates fabric-based photo-sculpture that explores fantasy, loss, commodity, and connection in American culture and for the exhibition he translated this into giftwrapping paper; with a great sense of humor Carlos Rigau addressed the socio-political structures in our society by reviving a now deceased emoji on his giftwrapping paper.
