“For me, it’s never been packaging,” Donovan said of the material most conventionally used for shipping. “It becomes a three-dimensional drawing object.”

Taking the form of a diagonally sloping 33-square-foot work that ranges in height from two inches to eight feet, Donovan’s new Untitled will give the viewer an opportunity to tower over or be enveloped by plastic cylinders—depending on where one stands. Donovan said she purposefully constructed the work so that it went above the viewer’s head—such that he or she could “be in the depth.” And by densely layering the material, the artist was able to reshape the graphic underpinnings of previous works like Untitled (Pins), from 2003, expressing them as a three-dimensional spread.

“The idea of creating a landscape within architecture has always been interesting to me,” Donovan said. “This piece becomes the architecture—it’s not just behaving within an architectural space, it makes the architecture.” www.artnews.com/2018/03/07/tubular-transparent-tr…
