Artist-educator Laura Vandenburgh “delivers [a group] show’s one true bravura moment,” writes art critic Richard Speer in art ltd. about “Constructs,” a recent exhibition at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center in Portland, Oregon. “Vandenburgh’s wall sculptures of meticulously cut paper variously resemble webs, nets, and the warped Penrose diagrams that show how black holes distort space-time. Dazzlingly complex and immaculately pieced together, they deliver a genuine ‘Wow!’ “ Vandenburgh is associate professor in the Department of Art. Her work for “Constructs” was supported by a Career Opportunity Grant from the Oregon Arts Commission and The Ford Family Foundation. Read the full review in art ltd.
