Meet the Artist!

Jazmine Catasús is an artist and educator primarily working with print and papermaking. She is currently an MFA candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and holds a BA from CUNY-Hunter College. She was trained as a papermaker at Pace Paper and Dieu Donné Papermill. Jazmine has taught printmaking and papermaking workshops at several institutions, including Dieu Donné, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, International Print Center of New York, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Noguchi Museum. Her work has been exhibited nationally, most recently at Blackburn 20|20 in New York City, and the Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland, OH. She is currently the studio coordinator EFA-Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, a printmaking technician at the Cooper Union School of Art, and serves on the Board of Hand Papermaking, Inc.

Lissy Mineo-Gonzalez is a Dominican-born interdisciplinary artist inspired by the juxtaposition between urbanization and the natural world. Her relationship to this friction stems from the disparate environments occupied by herself, her family, and her ancestors. Her themes explore the spectrum of eco-feminism, relationships between humans and non-human animals and plants, extinction, impermanence, and the intangibility of human consciousness.

In 2020, Lissy was chosen to be an artist in residence at AlterWork Studios in partnership with Back to the Lab NYC. In 2021, Lissy exhibited her work at AlterWork Studios in Queens, NY, and Gallery Petite in Brooklyn, NY. Her work is featured in En Foco’s online Apartment Gallery Series exhibition, Under Our Feet As Above Our Heads.
