“…pushed far enough, disciplined method can yield a kind of refined madness…”

October 2007 Artweek Cover Story
Transtructural, an exhibition featuring the work of Amanda Hughen and Michael Meyers, whose drawings and sculpture present a universe of architectural and biological fantasy, both dissolving geometry into ambiguous organic forms. In layered, expansive, translucent compositions, Hughen drafts events on mylar that are both geologic and cellular. The surreal sculptures and ink works of Meyers are a reflection on the physicality of sound and speech. Abstract and crafted, the artists’ work attempts to capture moments of creation and generation, intertwining forces sexual, spoken, biologic, and stellar.
