Thaïs Calvarin

Thaïs Calvarin is a papermaker and printmaker from Princeton, NJ. Since earning her BFA in Chicago in December of 2019, Thais has been exploring what visually communicating through paper might mean. She builds off of introspective drawings of her own thoughts and experiences by papercutting, redrawing, layering, translating, and reconfiguring this foundational imagery. When completed, the pieces are always an homage to compromise and a tribute to context. The original drawings act as both records of an evolving mindset and factors of a greater whole: translucent layers in a translucent piece where no single part can be viewed in isolation.
