Karla Black: GOMA Glasgow 2012
I enjoyed seeing Karla Black at GOMA in Glasgow. I love the way her work explores the following:
Black is an artist who has achieved increasing international acclaim and attention in recent years, with the past two years showing a substantial shift in the scale and ambition of her work.
Her works range from the small scale to the monumental, from delicate suspended paper pieces to giant swathes of cellophane. Black makes process- based sculptural works; at GoMA she uses 16 tonnes of sawdust from pine, maple, yew, teak and oak trees. The site-specific sculptures are often fleeting, with unstable surfaces existing only for the duration of the exhibition.
This exhibition is supported by Gi – Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art.
