In Toby Zallman’s sculptures there is always a combination of unrelated materials to represent dialectical oppositions such as hard/soft, ephemeral/enduring, open/closed and natural/fabricated. Since 2004, she has been using some form of recycled material as the basis for her pieces. The ubiquitous presence of plastic bags in our lives inspired the most recent sculpture and drawings. Their usefulness belies the damage that they wreak on the environment. The newest work combines the drawings and sculpture into multimedia installations.
