SAN FRANCISCO, JULY 24, 2011- Satellite66, the newest business to open on 6th Street in San Francisco, will debut its exhibition series on August 12, 2011 with works by Nicole Aptekar. An opening reception will be held from 7-10pm, and is free and open to the public.
Aptekar explores 3-dimensionality with stacks of laser-cut paperboard. Her laser-cut sculpture-objects show no evidence of the artist’s hand. First designed as virtual 3D objects in CAD software, and then translated into 2D layers of laser-cut bristol board that the artist stacks, the emphasis is on clean design and perfect, machine-executed manufacture. The effect is a sculpting of space.
