Shopportunities: Museum of Arts & Design
Nov. 6, 2009

On a recent trip to New York, I found myself in the swirl of Columbus Circle on a rainy and windy day. To escape the elements, I ducked inside the Museum of Arts & Design, where I encountered a weather pattern of another sort.

Made from cut paper, Brooklyn-based artist Mia Pearlman's cloudscape appears to burst into the museum through a thin window and rise up to the ceiling with the torrential force of a tornado. But it has a billowy, lace-like beauty, too.

The delicate installation is part of the "Slash: Paper Under the Knife" show and is, like the weather that inspired it, temporary.

But in conjunction with the exhibit, the museum is offering a limited edition, laser-cut sculpture made of translucent polystyrene called "Voluta" that can be transformed into a luminous vortex and hung in a window, placed near a light source or set out on a table.

"Voluta" is sold exclusively through the museum and its Web site, www.madmuseum.org, for the duration of the show, which ends April 4. It is $195.

- Mary Louise Schumacher, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL

 

 

 

Selected Newspaper Features

Don't miss Johns's spectacular new bronze 0-9, Anselm Kiefer's fantastical collage, or the gorgeous swirling piece by newcomer Mia Pearlman.
Jerry Saltz, NEW YORK MAGAZINE
And few works are as dynamic as Mia Pearlman’s “Inrush” — whorls of white paper that descend on the gallery with gale force from a recessed window. The installation brings to mind Hokusai’s “Sudden Gust of Wind,” as well as the chilling paper storm of 9/11.
Karen Rosenberg, NEW YORK TIMES
The New Yorker The best pieces, notably Mia Pearlman’s crashing waves of cut and painted paper in the windows, dig into the connection between creation and destruction. Vince Aletti, THE NEW YORKER>
The Boston Globe Mia Pearlman's cut-paper "HEMITROPE" is a fantastic, cyclonic structure bursting off the wall.
Cate McQuaid, BOSTON GLOBE
Among the impressive, mesmerizing works in the show [is] Mia Pearlman's smoky, swirling Inrush. NEW YORK MAGAZINE>
The New York Times Mia Pearlman’s extremely detailed atmospheric charcoal and graphite drawings of swirling cloud formations allude to different kinds of weather. Ms. Pearlman takes something relatively mundane and presents it in a way that is transfixing.
Benjamin Gennochio, NEW YORK TIMES
The sheer architectural scale of some of the paper installations is staggering: Mia Pearlman's work, for example, exhibits a level of dynamism and force that is somewhat unexpected in such a humble material.
Amber Bravo, GRAFIK MAGAZINE
Glass sculptor Mia Pearlman puts a shine on her art at Urban Glass.
