Multi-disciplinary artist Crystal Wagner‘s new show, Synesthesia, is filled with a vibrant array of colorfully unique shapes, details, and textures. Her collection of hand-cut paper sculptures are a combination of screen printing, cut paper, and various dollar store items set within wooden terrarium frames.
Layer upon layer, the Georgia-based artist produced the flowing pieces to reflect natural forms and living organisms. Each one is filled with a lively energy that seems just on the brink of expanding beyond the limitations of the frame and into the room.
According to the project, “The term ‘synesthesia’ describes the neurological phenomenon in which one or more of your senses is activated simultaneously to create an involuntary experience in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. Wagner's work pulls from this concept, causing viewers to questions their perceptions of the atmosphere around them.”
Wagner’s show is currently on view at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco, through March 29, 2014.
