Graduate Student in Printmaking Talks About Her Puppetry - In addition to being a third-year student in the UT MFA printmaking program, Johanna Winters is a puppeteer. Her hand-built figures are both endearing and uncanny, and her performances, using larger-than-life heads and distorted, delicate figures, are both humorous and dark. In her current work, Dowagers, she explores ideas about control and play through a pair of reclusive sisterly spinsters. Read more about Winters and her work at the School of Art.
