Fresh Faces in Art: Eight LA Artists You Should Know

Using paper for its fragile and temporary qualities as sculpture, Claire Jackel constructs elegant objects that place themselves within the context of the natural landscape at moments of catastrophe or imminent destruction. With a small helping of humor these objects — sometimes diggers and trains and other mechanical devices — attempt to counterbalance human frailties with technology, in unsuccessful Sisyphean struggles that act as metaphor for everything from financial structures to environmental issues. A beautiful craft skill and an intimate scale are used to full effect to entice the viewer into the dialogue with the anxieties and troubles of our age. (MP). http://www.clairejackel.com
