as one third owner of the toothless cat gallery here in good ol' philly, i have the privilege to be sent work by artists looking to show at our space. recently i was sent the work of local artist hilary white, and was completely floored. (i love it when that happens, especially around the cusp of fall when the prospect of newness takes over everyone//thing) her work seems to be collage like in theory, but instead of paper, she uses an interesting mix of plastic/wood/paint & light to create these glorious wall sculptures. in her artist statement she talks about being motivated to straddle the idea of art being used for religious purposes as well as personal. i'm very interested to see her work in person & to hopefully show her next year. in the meantime, if you live in philly, you can check her work out at ven & vaida.
