Small Cities On Stars By Jessica Kreutter says
Art League Houston is excited to present 'Small Cities On Stars', an installation by Houston-based artist Jessica Kreutter in the ALH Hallway Space.

“This is a piece about the place of imagination occupying the chasm between our minds on earth and the stars” says the artist. “Looking up into the night sky, I experience both a connection and separation from something so vast, distant and seemingly timeless. Space is a concept so unfathomable that imagination often fills in the gaps. We form pictures to connect the stars, we send out wishes and wonder at the possibilities. I seek comfort in this unknown”.

“This is a passage way where to find our way, we look up. Suspended overtop is a netted ceiling of weightless volume. It has structure, yet holds no mass and remains empty. It may catch or protect against something. Colonies of white droplets hang like suspended rain or constellations above and tall white towers grow in corners. This is a place we must travel through. A place that exists to connect other places”.


Jessica Kreutter has lived, been educated and made work in Denver, Portland, Knoxville and, currently, Houston. She has been a resident artist at Anderson Ranch, Vermont Studio Center, Art342 PlatteForum, TheHouston Center for Contemporary Craft, Caldera and The Oregon College of Art and Craft. In 2013, she designed an ice sculpture in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art (Denver) and created an unfired clay installation for the NCECA Project Space. Her clay installation work is featured in the January 2014 Issue of Ceramics Monthly. Recently, she has shown at Vertigo Gallery (Denver), Castle Gallery (New York) and Red Arrow Contemporary (Dallas). She loves all creatures both real and imaginary.
