'Restless Objects Now At Rest"

I love these beautiful works by the artist Kirsten Hassenfeld.

They have a purity of being that feels somehow like sacred art. 

Perhaps there is something in the history of a found object that makes it vibrate in a different way.

After many years of working with paper, the artist felt drawn to the unpredictable nature of found objects as raw material. Her connection to the environment and the natural world also encouraged that leaning.

That which is unwanted, that has outlived its useful life is given restoration here as part of a glorious whole.
