MFTA Gallery: To Shed New Light by Cecilia André

January 19, 2023 @ 9:00 am - March 10, 2023 @ 4:30 pm

Materials for the Arts is pleased to present To Shed New Light by MFTA Artist-in-Residence Cecilia André. MFTA invites you to be transported into an immersive dreamscape of assemblage works featuring a vast array of objects and materials. While working at MFTA, André allowed herself to get lost to find shapes, shades, and textures, creating works that beckon for closer inspection and reveal tiny stories meshed together by delicate interventions.

Illuminating these pieces and compositions with colored shadows, André emphasizes the wonder of “transparent” light. She literally and figuratively sheds new light on the materials featured in her work, including everything from lampshades to glass vases, to figurines, trinkets, straws, floss, wire notebook bindings, and beads.
