  • Description

  • Internationally-exhibited artist Don Porcella works in a range of materials, but is best known for his sculptural work in pipe cleaners. Porcella's meticulously crafted figures transform this staple of childhood craft into high art. Working in his signature medium and using a weaving technique honed over many years, Porcella has created a series of original dioramas that present an imagined tale of an alien encounter. The narrative that transpires across the display cases reflects a long-standing fascination with science fiction that began in Porcella's childhood.
