Craft & Design

Sonya Blesofsky makes these incredibly detailed sculptures of objects that she encounters in her daily life out of: vellum, glue and tape.

The construction of each piece is labor-intensive, yet once built, the work will soon break, decay or be deconstructed. In this way there is a sense of urgency for experiencing each piece, as this is temporary work. It is important that construction flaws be left visible-I intend to expose the process and techniques used in the creation of each work.

You can see Blesofsky’s work next month at Cuchifritos Art Gallery in Manhattan.

Artist, writer, and teacher who makes work about popular culture, technology, and traditional craft processes.
