MARY BUTTON DURELL

Beautiful tracing paper and wheat paste sculptures by San Francisco based artist Mary Button Durell. Here is a bit about the construction method from her artist statement: “At first glance these pieces appear to be built onto a rigid wire frame, however, the process is much more organic and the structure is created from my own hand building.  Individual cells or cones that comprise most of the pieces are first formed over molds of various shapes and sizes and then joined together using wheat paste cell by cell.  Additional layers of paper and paste are then added for strength and reinforcement which creates the net-like structure around the individual cells.”
