INSTALLATION AT MANHATTAN BEACH PUBLIC LIBRARY
Video showcasing the complex installation of the 2-piece public art project by Kathy Taslitz, now located at the Manhattan Beach Public Library in Manhattan Beach, CA. The project includes Personal Archaeology, a giant wall-relief kelp sculpture in aluminum and Prevailing Affinities, a series of 18 fiberglass and silicone jellyfish suspended from a giant skylight.
The 2014 series of sensual forms entitled “Just Visiting” gracefully reflects the symbiosis between nature and humanity, asking existential questions about how the two coexist. This series melds grand sculptures of seashells with elaborate technical components, with each work representing one of the five senses.
LET IT GO
Artist Kathy Taslitz exemplifies the complicated nature of our attachment to the known world in a monumental sculpture aptly entitled Let It Go. The 6' high and 9’ wide Buddha, made of polished stainless steel in the shape of leaves, encapsulates the concept of transitory life as leaves are blowing away from the form.
