Esther Solondz

Long time no blog. I apologize, and promise to do better! I was in Boston this weekend and went to Gallery Naga for the Esther Solondz show of these wonderful sculptures. They are made of silicone poured and dipped onto  and into  cage-like and jellyfish-like structures. When I entered the gallery I thought they were glass. They are so sparkly under the lights. They look very delicate, but then was told they are rubber, and it added a whole new dimension  to  the way I approached them. I felt their delicacy and their strength. This artist has worked with many simple things, like salt and rust. She is interested in how materials like these are transformed over time. Website here.
