Project Atrium breathes life into this highly respected artist’s grand-scale installations of the moon and comets constructed from materials that are making resurgence in contemporary three-dimensional sculpture: felt, fabric and neon.
Lowe will be at MOCA starting Monday, July 16 to install the work and give a lecture about his career and creative process at 2pm Saturday, July 21.
Using low-tech (but labor-intensive) methods and material, sculptor Tristin Lowe created his 2010 work, Lunacy, a sizable version of the moon that will fill the Haskell Atrium Gallery by covering an inflatable sphere, 12 1/2 feet in diameter, in white felt. The felt surface of Lunacy, composed of fourteen sections sewn together and hand worked, presents an astonishing feat of craftsmanship. A myriad of raised craters and rings approximate the moon’s terrain rather than replicating its actual geological features.
