Crystal Wagner’s otherworldly installations are both spellbinding and unsettling. The works resemble something organic, yet are constructed from paper, wire, wood, paint, sealant, and other materials. Her recent pieces are part of the new show “Dimensions of Three” at Allouche Gallery in New York City, along with Martin Gremse and Reinoud Oudshoorn. The show starts Nov. 30 and runs through Dec. 31. The artist was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 41, and she last appeared on our website here.
Or as the gallery says, “her pieces resemble mutant honey combs, enchanted plasma or toxic dipped coral reefs hungry for revenge. Straddling the line between natural and artificial, rampant and contained, Wagner’s abstract forms resemble otherworldly growths that have temporarily agreed to reside peacefully on the gallery walls.”
