Class 236 - Kastura

KASTURA by Frank Stella (b.1936)

WINNER: Ann Hohenberger

She expressed Stella's radical massive wall relief. This three-dimensional art cut-out challenges the traditional confines of the picture plane. An assemblage design.

An Assemblage Design: The selection and display of diverse plant materials and unrelated objects to create a unified design. These elements may be placed side by side and overlapped in an abstract concept. Containers not used as such. Types of assemblage are free-standing or sculptural, displayed in a niche, or mounted on a panel (collage). A combination of these is sometimes used.
