Artist Emily Payne creates site-specific installations, sculpture, and works on paper based on delicate wire forms and the shadows they cast. She transforms materials by deconstructing them from multiple angles beyond their utilitarian function.The repetition of circular shapes clustered together, hovering in the air, and resting on the ground create shadows that expand their physical boundaries. In this way, the ephemeral qualities of the forms occupying space are as important as the forms themselves.
