Installation in the paper forest exhibition, 2007
Studio 2 and 36 of Open Studios, Somerville
studio glow is a sculpture collaboration between husband and wife, Robert Ostermeyer and Riki Moss . The couple work primarily with overbeaten Abaca paper pulp to create sculpture, installations and lighting that play with forces of wind, water, light and shadow. The amazing pulp material records rippling, undulating, and sometimes violently turbulent surfaces. Their eco-art is a response to the environment.
To the sculptors, light brings revelation. For their illuminated sculptures, light illuminates details of the dynamic structure and variegated skin. It enhances contrasting shadow tones that reveal the fiber plane surface and topographical characteristics of paper.
