Causey Contemporary

Amanda Dow Thompson’s installation Ghost Moth filled the center of Causey’s vast, elegant, and well-lit space with about a dozen narrow spiral shapes. Dangling from a ring of suspended aluminum tubing, these vertebrae-like forms tapered and twisted down for about five feet, nearly reaching the floor. In the middle of the configuration hung four wooden variations with honeycomb formations carved into them. These served as models for clear resin castings suspended around the circumference, with clear rubber tubing snaking out above and below. …see the entire review in the print version of October’s Sculpture magazine.
