Artist Amy Brener has developed a method of layering resin to create light sensitive sculptures. The production of these works involves an intense technique of mixing and pouring pigmented resin into wooden frameworks. Brener experiments within this fluid process of layering and embedding and embraces all surprises that occur. The end result is an object that continuously reveals itself to the viewer. Brener’s sculptures come alive as you move around them, changing with every shift of light. Their forms are human-scale and exist somewhere between the geological and the man-made. Their surfaces are complex crusts that appear to have cracked, crystallized and weathered with time. Within these crusts there are fragments of technology: the microchips, panels and screens of an unknown future.
