Joan Son Part Geometry, Part Zen: A Personal Exploration through Paper
Origami works always give off an aura of calm and simplicity though anyone whos attempted to turn one of those squares into a simple crane can attest to the maddening complexity of the process. Houston-based artist Joan Son has long since transcended the trickiness and has widely displayed her airy, inventive constructions since her work debuted in 1993 in a Tiffany & Co. window display. For her solo exhibition at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Joan Son Part Geometry, Part Zen: A Personal Exploration through Paper, shell cover the centers artist hall with 500 of her signature origami butterflies.
A number of other paper-crafted works will be on display, including Eat, a collection of delectable-if-pointy-looking fruits and vegetables in paper bowls. Son describes her work as being in the medium of paper based in the discipline of origami; fortunately, shes the one with discipline we can just indulge in the Zen. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
