Mia Pearlman MAELSTROM
July 25 through September 27, 2009
Sculptor Mia Pearlman creates the ineffable from the ephemeral—her massive works of art are fashioned from paper, and they suggest the transitory nature of life on planet Earth. Featured in this exhibition will be MAELSTROM, a giant multilevel mobile, 12 feet in diameter with a 360-degree rotation. Consisting of six circular layers of cut paper hanging from an aluminum armature, it hovers just above the heads of its viewers. Swirling cut-paper clouds evoke nature’s duality both perfectly sublime and supremely destructive.
Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
