at the Umbrella Gallery in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas, Texas.
The following works were selected for display from a body of work entitled FashionLine.
Select pieces shown:
- Body (Green)
- Body (Blue)
Details on FashionLine:
Fashionline pieces are possibly the smallest I’ve attempted to work my algorithmic process to date. Still utilizing stainless steel to create my pieces, I delicately bent and welded wire to plate according to my artistic process.

Description of Artist as posted in MicroGallery show:
“Wester is an investigative sculptor with a heavy focus on the
attributes of fine line mark making. Constructing work mainly with
metal, she shapes two dimensional designs into fine third dimension
sculptural drawings through the application of her own algorithmic
process to paper based basis. The pieces shown for the Umbrella
Gallery’s micro space exhibit derive themselves from fashion sketches
in Wester’s own past as a professional athletic costume designer.
Entitled ‘Fashion Line’ the figures shown seek to highlight
differences between figural sketch lines and body shape.”
Description for Body pieces (Blue and Green):
“A 3-dimensional rendition of a body in line using an algorithmic process to lift the pen-drawn image from a 2-dimensional space on paper to a sculpted metal piece–visually depicting the human neurological line-recognition process and bringing motion, shape-shifting, and space into an otherwise flat interpretation of the human form.”
Description for H-air piece (Pink):
“A 3-dimensinoal rendition of a styled-bust in line using an algorithmic process to lift the pen-drawn image from a 2-Dimensional space on paper to a sculptural metal piece–visually describing the human neurological line recognition process and bringing motion, shape-shifting, and space into an otherwise flat interpretation.”
