Toothpick Mountains and Styrofoam Skies

Artist Tara Donovan, recent recipient of the MacArthur Foundation “genius award,” takes object art to new levels in her latest, eponymous exhibit, now showing at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Donovan uses paper plates, Styrofoam cups, and toothpicks to create amazing organic monoliths, undulating through the large spaces they occupy while at the same time finely detailed. To see more of Donovan’s work, take a look at the slideshow on the left of the ICA’s web page.
