More somber were sculptures by Sandra Muss, created from old industrial doors from the Berkshires, where the artist works in a former lumber mill. 


Muss’s Portals might be a species of tantalizing tree left by extra-terrestrials, a kind of sacred grove hosting druidic as well as contemporary or even futuristic rituals– time is flexible in fantasias.

Firenze Today

“Spicca un’installazione di Sandra Muss: sette porte lignee, dilavate dalla storia, sabbiate dal vento, con linee di luce LED dietro a tronchi corrosi ed imbiancati dalla salsedine. Il trascorrere del tempo e la mutazione di ogni cosa sono evidenti nelle lastre di metallo arrugginito e negli oggetti restituiti dal mare o rinvenuti da Sandra Muss nei suoi viaggi in luoghi lontani.

Sandra Muss has a unique approach to making her art, which develops from gathering disparate raw materials that seem to be naturally and precisely sewn into a movable feast of colorful palettes that she incorporates into her distinctive style of work.

“Sandra Muss’s Permutations featured in a review of OpenArtCode Florence, Corriere Fiorentino, Italy, April 19, 2018.”


Its site-specific installation, “Portals” by Sandra Muss, features seven 10-foot-high steel-and-glass columns that reflect and engage with their natural environment. Arranged in a mazelike configuration, the columns are wrapped in wire and vines that mimic and reflect nature.
