Mama Pajama Rolled Out of Bed

 Mama Pajama Rolled Out of Bed
Nov 18th – Dec 10th, 2010

Marcie Paper’s paintings and animations capture unique moments of time
while investigating the nature of memory and nostalgia. Through a
diaristic process, the artist records her daily events, anxieties, and
emotions as they manifest into memory. By tracking these events
through abstract symbols, she is able to “hold on a little longer,
understand a little better, and have physical evidence of, [her]
existence.”

The works in this exhibit were made during two years when Paper
listened exclusively to one side of a Paul Simon album. The songs
began to remind her of previous seasons while simultaneously
generating new associations in the present. She “began to wonder how
much  “memory-time” one album or song could hold.” “Mama Pajama Rolled
Out of Bed” is the first line on the album.


Brooklyn artist Marcie Paper received a BFA in 2-D studies and a BS in
Art Therapy from Bowling Green State University and an MFA in Painting
from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She has been awarded a
number of residencies, and has shown her work nationally. For more
