Between Organic and Technological: Art by Angela Britzman

Angela Britzman is a New York-based artist who works in sculpture and traditional two-dimensional media. The artist’s works, particularly her sculptures, toe the aesthetic line between organic and technological, taking a single base form as a starting point and exploring a vast range of media and materials.

It’s really interesting to browse through Angela’s sculpture series and see the many different paths she takes to arrive at a particular visual destination. As we saw in our previous feature of Angela’s geometric intersections, the artist’s two-dimensional artworks seem to complement the three-dimensional ones -- dark landscapes and planes of black or deep blue dotted with white points that could be stars or snowflakes all lend to interpretations of the essentially abstract forms that make up the artist’s sculptural oeuvre.

It’s easy to think of these sculptures as objects on either a macroscopic or microscopic scale. Where one person might see an interpretation of a virus or bacteria, another might see a distant planet or another interstellar object.
