mia pearlman's cut paper sculptures are haunting and beautiful and delicate and powerful and oh my goodness gorgeous! she describes her work as "meditation on chance, control and the ephemeral nature of reality. the forms in my work exist on the brink of being and not being, free from physical constraint. imaginary landscapes are shown frozen in mid-evolution, on the brink between contracting or expanding, solidifying or breaking apart. my goal is to find the picture beyond the big picture, the space between the nucleus and the electron, the moment between creation and destruction."
