September 11-22, 2017
Reception: Thursday, September 21, 7-9 PM
In Spectrum is an installation constructed of thousands of hand-dyed strands of string, wooden boxes, wire mesh, rope, yarn, hand-woven color pools, pulleys, and wooden dowels. The installation cascades from the ceiling to the floor spilling the colors of the spectrum throughout the space. Shayla Fiscus derives inspiration from fiber artists of the 1960s and examines the tactile dimensionality of viewer perception, examining our emotional connections to color and tactility of fiber.
Shayla Fiscus will graduate from MSUB in fall 2017 with a BFA in Sculpture and a BA in Art Education. She has worked on campus as a gallery assistant and a studio technician.
