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.
