Eve Ingalls works out of a former chicken coop in the Sourland Mountains of New Jersey, with a vista that could be mistaken for Vermont, but thoughts of oil spills, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other forms of environmental destruction are never far from her mind. Human manipulation may be destroying the earth, but she finds beauty in bringing it to the forefront of our attention. A student of Josef Albers, Ingalls was a painter for many years, but at the turn of the millennium, she moved away from the rectangle and turned to sculpture. She discovered cast paper and became intrigued with how it collaborates as it dries on the armature. “It gives the feeling of life that goes beyond me,” Ingalls has said. …see the entire review in the print version of January/February’s Sculpture magazine.
