Fort Works art presents Tropism, a solo exhibition by internationally renowned artist, Crystal Wagner. Wagner is a cut paper and installation artist based in Philadelphia, PA. She received her MFA from the University of Tennessee, her BFA from Atlanta College of Art and her AFA from Keystone College. She is represented by Hashimoto Contemporary in San Fransisco, CA.
Wagner’s interest in combining two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms, alternative use of materials, and hybrid approaches to printmaking and massive site-specific installations, have led to her artwork being exhibited extensively in the U.S. and abroad. Her most recent commissions include large-scale installations for the Flaming Lips, NIKE and most recently a 117 ft. piece for the Viacom headquarters in Times Square.
Currently you can find countless features on her work: New York Times, Architectural Digest, Artnet, Hi Fructose, Juxtapoz Magazine, Arrestedmotion.com, ArtAttacks Online, Art& Science Journal, Inspir3d.com, Complex Art & Design Magazine, Crome Yellow Magazine, Catapult Art Magazine, My Modern Met, Beautiful Decay Magazine and many more. Recently she was the recipient of an Awesome Without Borders, Awesome Foundation Art Grant and the Sculpture and Installation Category Award Winner of the SEE.ME, Art Takes Paris, international art competition. In 2015 she was awarded the highly coveted Pollock-Kasner Grant.
