Employing an array of materials including plastic film, paper, sequins, and ribbon, Katy Stone responds to the movement of light and shadow within Oxbow gallery to create an installation that captures and magnifies light's presence. At a time of seasonal shift, More Light explores amassment and light as fact and metaphor.
Katy Stone's work merges aspects of drawing, painting and sculpture, and is rooted in site specific, temporary installation. She uses a variety of industrial, synthetic materials to create complexly layered, architecturally-scaled assemblages that evoke natural phenomena and explore states of transformation.
