Using rope, yarn, clay, and wire, this group of conceptual artists in A Beautiful Mess knot and twist their media into sculptures and wall hangings that range from minimal and hyper-organized to utter pandemonium. They explore personal and political ideals order and chaos to the extreme and freely break the rules to create their beautiful artworks. Serious about making a strong cultural and intellectual impact, this group deftly weaves their message into works that demonstrate extraordinary technical skill.
