Wormholes, vivisection, microscopic patterns in nature, and “the overlooked potential of common things” form the inspiration behind artist Jen Stark’s intricate sculptures from paper and wood.  She strives to create intricate, complex creations that reveal “how remarkable common materials can become.”  Stark first began using paper at a time when other art supplies were out of her financial reach; paper was simply the least expensive option with the most potential.  Relying on precision, mathematics, and extensive planning, the sculptures are time-intensive and involved.  A solo exhibition of Stark’s work is scheduled for March 2 at the Lazardies gallery in London.

Ran Hwang, a Korean born artist based in New York, creates large scale art installations using only clothing notions.  Buttons and thread are connected and anchored to thousands of pins hammered into the wall.  Hwang wishes to suggest “connections between human beings and a communication network between seemingly unlinked human experiences.  The filled negative space in the absence of the positive space suggests mortality at the heart of self-recognition.”  Her work has taken the minutiae and ephemera of “a woman’s work” and transformed it into daring, aggressive, and beautiful works of thoroughly liberated art.

Always enigmatic, UK based painter HUSH is known for blending traditional Eastern art motifs with contemporary Western styles including graffiti, action painting, and pop art.  Hush’s creations are recognizable for their focus on serene female figures set among a cacophony of graphics, writing, and bright color.  His method includes, “letting the canvas and marks take their own path.”  New Works by HUSH is currently on exhibit at the 941Geary gallery in San Francisco.
