Setting outdoor landscape: construction of found objects mounted on wrought candle stand

Roxi Marsen, Fountain Magic (2021). Mixed Media. 20 x 48 x 20 in.

Drawing on my early childhood I remember a massive, tiered chandelier, thousands of mesmerizing prisms dancing on a sunny day. Embracing this sensory memory, I find myself making objects in space with shimmering, subtle kinetic energy. Whether standing or suspended in air, these constructions combine colorful doodads, found objects, balance, intricate beading and wire. They possess an essential whimsy that gives my creations their magical livelihood.
