Home Sweet Home
November 19 - January 5, 2012
Jasmyne Graybill draws from the familiar forms of fungus, lichen, and mold to
create installations and sculptures that are inspired by the innate logic of
natural growth and decay. Her work reflects the intrinsic beauty of these
processes and intimate ecosystems. She invents and sculpts fictional organisms
that graft onto manufactured domestic objects and infest the nooks and
crannies of their "host" architectural spaces. These hosts provide sustenance
and physical support, and ultimately become a fertile hot bed of reproduction.
Blurring the notions of synthetic and organic, real and imagined, Graybill's
work suggests that through the passage of time, man made spaces and objects
may be overtaken by nature.
