Double Moon

Constructions & Conversations Margo Klass & Frank Soos

Publication Year: 2009

For thirty years, Margo Klass has created hand-crafted book forms. In the last decade she's turned her skills to making elegant and profound sculptures. She constructs box forms, icons, and altarpieces, and covers them in cloth or fine paper. Some have windows or skylights so shadow and light can collaborate. Then she gleans from the wide world found objects that she places in gorgeous juxtaposition. From this process come altarpieces and icons, tiny rooms and vast expanses that draw us into their worlds. Frank Soos spends time in each of these created spaces, and responds in miniature essays, pieces of brief prose no longer than a paragraph. The interplay between words and objects is startling, playful, thought-provoking, and emotionally complex. Reflection and refraction—we take in both words and images, and then our imaginations continue the transformations.

Boxes, small worlds of wonder made from paper, board, and everyday objects transformed to talismans. And words, just as tautly crafted, just as constrained in scale and expansive in allusion, calling into form companion spheres of memory and experience that intersect with the visual realms they adjoin. ...
