Gyöngy Laky: Play By The Rules

Gyöngy LakyGyöngy Laky’s Play By The Rules is a great addition to the Arcadia 2007 Auction. Constructed from the street trees in her Neighborhood, nails and plastic army men — this piece has both a ecological and a political edge. This wall mounted sculpture will be part of the Live Auction. If you’ve never encountered Gyöngy’s work before, you should give her a google. (By the way, it’s pronounced “Ging” as in “Ginger”)

Stuermer samples moments in time, capturing them in resin. The artistry is in the moments she chooses.
