Interstitial: Between Earth and Sky


Interstitial: Between Earth and Sky

Interstitial: Between Earth and Sky
by Gerri Sayler (American, b. 1950) explores her fascination with water, clouds and the spaces that exist between land and sky.  Perpetually in flux throughout the day, the gossamer sculpture transitions between opacity and translucency, light and shadow.  The artist creates the membrane-like fibers by drawing onto water with molten hot glue, which rapidly cools to form the filigree strands.

During artist residencies in Wyoming last year, Sayler was inspired by the freeze-thaw cycles of mountain-fed rivers and the cloud-forming processes of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. The shape, materials and tactility of her sculpture reflect her explorations of form and texture, which also function metaphorically for the artist to reference the cycles of nature and the nature of time. 

is the final installation featured as part of Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational, an exhibition that began in 2008.

Funded in part by an anonymous sponsor and the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund.
