Spread the Ashes of the Colors at The Wexner Center for the Arts

Megan Geckler has transformed the lobby of the Wexner Center into a lively, vibrantly colorful place with Spread the ashes of the colors, one of her intricately woven environmental sculptures. Geckler uses only strips of translucent plastic tape in her installations, positioning them and weaving them together to create surface patterns and curvilinear forms. In this case, she has lined several walls and wrapped several of the center’s iconic columns in tape stripes and designed a loosely woven form that hovers like a canopy above the center’s lower lobby and café area. Geckler is based in Los Angeles, and her work has been exhibited at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, the Torrance Art Museum, Women & Their Work in Austin, Texas, and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
