Scanga Installation in Houston Art Exhibition

A nine-foot-tall installation by Assistant Professor of Visual Art Carrie Scanga currently is on view at Houston’s Lawndale Art Center through Jan. 7, 2012.

The work, view from high places, is part of a two-person show exhibit called Ballast/Break with Philadelphia artist Alexis Granwell.

Scanga’s massive, apparently floating structure of bricks is constructed of tracing paper bricks with intaglio printing strung together with thread.
