comments: tara uses everyday, mass-produced materials and through repetition, scale and form takes them completely out of context into incredibly monumental sculptures. her process started by accident when she purchased a roll of plastic sheeting to use as a drop cloth. as she was unrolling it, she noticed how beautiful the folds were that it created. this began her focus on such mundane materials and how they could be transformed into something quite spectacular. check out the ace gallery website to see more of her work. sublime.
