Tension : No Tension installation artwork by Verna Vogel

Tension : No Tension is inspired in part by a childhood memory of string art kits popular in the 1970’s: you followed the instructions and ended up with a recognizable image, for example an owl.
Unlike those kits, this site-specific work utilizes a non-linear process to explore delicately balanced tensions with string, and ends up with two- and three-dimensional drawings which span the gallery walls.
It’s unlikely to produce any recognizable owls, but you may find a floating feeling of wings unfolding.
