Martha Otero Gallery will be presenting Jen Stark’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles (where she currently lives and works) at the end of the month. The title of the show, To the Power Of, refers to her interest in mathematics with the term being a “statement of exponential growth which also infers the definition of ‘power’ as both the possession of physical or mental control and the fortitude to act decisively.” Anyone who has seen her stunning paper cut sculptures in person can attest to the time consuming and intricate process Stark must use to create such a mind-blowing effect – one that certainly require physical and mental control. Appropriately, her psychedelic works with repeating geometric patterns and explosions of colors certainly must have some mathematical basis, if not academically, then aesthetically. See for yourself on September 28th, opening night.
