Description

Five starkly white cylindrical forms, each with a frontal opening revealing encased contents, are lined vertically on a background of handmade dark colored papers. Artist Anjal Solar used recycled paper processed in her sculpture-making to create a powerful formalistic statement in repeating the cylindrical forms. This artwork is installed on the 5th floor of the Main Library.

 

Artist Statement

"Solar's interpretations are a combination of the processes of recycling and outer space involvements. The forms are repetitive but the manner in which they evolve results in a slow but dramatic time change."
