“Holly Savas’ series “Shape Towers” engages with what she describes as “the tension created when contemporary colors and patterns are paired with primitive shapes”; she “flattens” the collaged objects into cross sections that “provide a clearer visual of how rough lines, wobbly shapes and imperfect proportion can work fluidly with fresh, modern materials.” Forms find their balancing point, their chain links, even as the eye wonders: what is foreground, what is background? What is mirror, what is cage? I see a similar contrast between the contemporary and the primitive—if taken to mean whatever has come first, with an undercurrent of the more immediate, primal emotions—in the written work of this issue. It’s filled with cross-sections and intersections.”Rebecca Starks, Editor, Mud Season Review (March 2016) Show Full Article
