New Kaleidoscopic Paper Sculptures by Jen Stark


Paper is a cheap and accessible medium that can produce beautiful results. However, it requires meticulous skill to expertly maneuver and manipulate the fragile material. Luckily, artist Jen Stark possesses the ability to utilize the medium, reveal new ways of viewing its construction, and expose its beauty. We've shared several of Stark's three-dimensional paper sculptures in the past and we're glad to see her signature kaleidoscopic and psychedelic aesthetic being transferred to her newest multihued works.

The paper sculptor, who was born in Miami but currently lives and works in Los Angeles, has recently opened her first solo exhibition in Los Angeles called To the Power Of. The exhibit features a variety of Stark's new multilayered works that showcase the artist's intricate incisions and carefully crafted paper art. Equipped with a stack of of construction paper, an X-Acto knife, and some glue, Stark has yet again created an amusement park for the eyes with both a wide color spectrum and repetitive visual sequences. The recurring geometric patterns in each piece reflect many elements of life, including the passage and intervallic rhythm of time.

To the Power Of is currently showing at Martha Otero Gallery through November 10, 2012.
