SANDRA MUSS – What will you leave behind?

By Amalia Caputo

“What will you leave behind?” reads a neon sign on an old, rusty iron door, recovered and later intervened by artist Sandra Muss (New York, 1949). Her latest works incorporate a wide array of materials and strategies, including the re-purposing of discarded construction paraphernalia such as doors, skylights, wooden pieces, natural debris, portals and trays; tapping into the material and the value found in its layers of history; scavenging for natural objects in her surroundings; and interventions on human-made objects.

Scavenger of Beauty, the works of Sandra Muss

By Bruce Helander

I have been following the professional career of Miami Beach-based artist Sandra Muss for a number of years and in particular the flurry of creative activities that the artist has generated over the past twenty-four months, which is nothing less than remarkable.  She has exhibited at the New Gallery of Modern Art in Charlotte, the Kreeger Museum and Sculpture Garden (which was designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson) in Washington, D.C., Hollis Taggart Galleries in Manhattan and DTR Modern in Palm Beach and Boston, as well as a solo show at the Coral Springs Museum of Art, and an on-stage site-specific projected  installation for “The Poetry of Music and Design, An Homage to Zaha Hadid”.
