Presented by Light Art Space sponsored by the Southwest Print Fiesta

OBSESSION is an exhibition of hand-pulled prints responding to the idea of a compulsive preoccupation with an object, idea, person, place, memory, phobia, pattern, thought, image, shape, word, and more. This exhibition will highlight the many visual guises that infatuation can take and challenge the viewer’s relationship to their own habitual fixations and proclivities.
