Enchanting lightboxes, parking lot murals, immersive projections — the next stop in Jen Stark’s hypnotic practice is the world of stained glass. Made in conjunction with Avant Arte, Dichroic Mandala is Stark’s first glass edition and continues on her exploration into optical seduction and perceptual engagement.
The hanging sculpture was inspired by geometry, natural forms and mandalas and created with alternating sheets of dichroic and colored glass. Even when static, the artwork creates an allusion of movement that pulsates in broad daylight, as in darkness. To make efficient use of materials, the sequence of colors will vary from piece to piece — garnering each sculpture unique.
Dichroic Mandala is an edition of 50 and will be available to purchase for $2,691 USD on October 26 at 9am ET via Avant Arte. The sculpture will come packaged in a bespoke wooden box, along with a certificate of authenticity.
