Tara Donovan’s sculptures look like they may have been built by an insect colony with a hive mind. One can imagine thousands of tiny creatures each carrying index cards or acrylic threads, dropping them to form a sculpture growing from a gallery floor. That is to say, Donovan’s work process is highly repetitious, stacking, gluing and sculpting mundane materials until they begin to take on new, organic forms. Several of the artist’s latest large-scale sculptures are currently on display in a dual exhibition at Pace Gallery’s Menlo Park, CA and New York City art spaces.
