Valerie Ling

Valerie Ling notes, “Children simply notice what they notice.” Her sculptures draw viewers to a childlike realm of awareness, yet there can also be detected a film of darkness in the work — an irony that comes from eating all the cake we could possibly desire. Here, in this place of contrast, we can investigate the layers of our mortality. Not to worry, the work is far too joyous to stay in the veil of darkness. Ling awakens us from adulthood with a world of pure imagination.
