Artist Jeff Schmuki uses common materials and repurposes them into art that comments on the real costs of over-consumption. Lattice is an undulating soft sculpture composed of nylon fabric tubes stuffed with a growing medium and seeded with local plants. The piece stretches throughout the gallery, creating a green space that speaks to contemporary re-imaginings of hard and soft, drawing and sculpture, space and time, fragility and regeneration. Each soft grey tube will slowly turn green and generate an artistic “event” that incorporates textures, shadows, and smells.
