I am so taken with the way artists take common materials and lead us to think of them in a more abstract way. San Francisco artist Mary Button Durell uses simple tracing paper to create beautifully simple yet amazing sculptures.
Using the tracing paper and wheat paste, Durell hand shapes the forms, resulting in light, organic arrangements that seem to be suspended in a fragile state.
The cell-like shapes and translucency call to mind shells or bubbles, ever changing and fleeting.
