COOPER COLE is pleased to announce a solo show exhibiting wor k of American artist\, Jen Stark.

\n

Jen Stark's work is distinct and undeniably recognizable for its cyclical\, co lourful\, op-art attributes. Stark fuels her craftsmanship with inspiration drawn from an interest in mathematics\, natural organisms\, and outer spac e. Optical illusions\, colour gradations\, and repetition play key roles in her sculptural works. The visual outcome is optically alluring and generat es an ambiance of the surreal. These bold\, colourful installations suggest a fantastical\, psychedelic atmosphere and welcomes the viewer into the re alm of Stark's imagination.
