Sarah Sze said that she perpetually collects little things everywhere she goes, so her works can be thought of as autobiographical records of where she’s been. Her materials include quotidian and even mundane objects, like office supplies, electric lights, fans, water systems, houseplants, birthday candles, Q-Tips, and Asprin. Sze is best known for creating sprawling installations and sculptures that stretch suspended from floor to ceiling. The arrangements are closely packed compositions that variously reference both landscape and architecture; yet in spite of being three-dimensional, the sculptures emphasize delicate lines. Themes in her work include ecology, interconnectivity, and labor. Richard Serra, an admirer of her work, has commended Sze for “changing the potential of sculpture.”
