Sanzi Studio
– Sanzi Kermes

Sanzi Kermes documents games of Scrabble she has played, screen prints the pattern left at game's end, and writes senryu (a haiku not based in nature) using the words played. An ex-cartographer, the screen prints are reminiscent of the Rectangular Survey System devised by the Land Ordinance of 1785.
Sanzi graduated in 1982 from Syracuse University - a dual major in Geography and Advertising. At 35, she left corporate work and, during the next decade, her life took extraordinary turns: at 43, she became a widow, at 45 she gave birth to her daughter, and at 48 she earned her Masters of Contemporary Fine Art Practice from Leeds Beckett University, Leeds, UK. She lives in Baltimore with her daughter.
