Samira Gdisis is a printmaker, interdisciplinary artist, community builder, and curator from Racine, Wisconsin. She loves making art — sometimes fun and sometimes serious — often as a means of documenting life around her or the history of the people in her life. Despite being an interdisciplinary artist who loves color, she returns to linoleum printmaking often. In "Petals & Wings" -- her new series of linocuts featuring local flora and fauna -- each piece has an element that is intimate and intrinsically personal and yet the imagery is relatable. “In other collections, I often do not focus on pretty work. Petals and Wings, however, is meant to be lived with. I hope these pieces share wonder, emotion, composition, and contrast in a way that relates to the viewers.” -- Samira Gdisis
