Joanne Ungar
Blank White Box 03 (1450)

$950

About

Available framed (8"x7" unframed) 9.5"x 8.5" framed Joanne Ungar’s use of wax obscures and mystifies the origin of the materials she has imbedded. In this work, the composition is determined by the orientation and design of re-purposed cardboard packaging. The corrugated lines and smooth surfaces are enhanced, transforming the byproduct of consumerism into a wholly new entity. Color and opacity play a large role in Ungar’s process, in which she holds a tenuous control over the outcome of each poured layer of molten wax. Joanne Ungar achieves a heightened visual depth through her choice of pigmentation and the level of translucence within each strata of wax. Ungar examines the physical and ideological concept of packaging, considering the value of the stuff we cast off, misleading facades and the pervasiveness of materialism in our culture.
