Jay Musler

1949 U.S.A

Jay Musler theatrically recreates the silhouette of the city as a  miniature within a large bowl. It is as if we as humans have been  placed in a sphere of the universe looking out at this world, this city  and the people surrounding us. Musler’s work readdresses human value  and significance. Light appears to shine from within the city through  meticulous sandblasting and painting. The effect creates a city of  glass that is realistic yet illusory, bright yet shadowed, beautiful  yet earnest.

“My relationship to society and nature on  a physical plane is transferred to the vertical and horizontal of my  mind. Through this process I work. Here are the bridges I construct at  various levels, on several paths, to cross the many parallel meanings  of life”

─ Jay Musler.
