Nancy Diessner's Shelter in Place show at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston depicts portraits of rescued dogs beside portraits of the women who saved them. Diessner, who worked at the Save a Dog shelter knows all the dogs and owners personally and learned from her time at the shelter "that the bond that grew between often-abandoned or abused dogs and the people who adopted them was 'direct but not simple.' "
Chris Bergeron of Daily News and Wicked Local has an interview with Diessner, a review of the show, and a detailed explanation of the artist's printmaking process that incorporates digital photography, photopolymer gravure printmaking, and Japanese paper. Read the full article here.
My favorite quote from Diessner, "What I see in the eyes of dogs and in the connection we have with them can, for me, only be expressed visually."
