Anna Korte and the Metaphysical Mosaic

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Mon, Jun 29, 2009 at 9:23 AM

Most likely if you've heard of Anna Korte, you know her as a jewelry artist, her earthy, leather and metal earrings and necklaces dotting the counters and wardrobes of Portland's fine women and boutiques. But this coming Friday at the 811 building's First Friday shenanigan, she'll be unveiling her more literally sculptural side with and installation titled "Metaphysical Mosaic," it is described as "a large scale minimalist installation involving fiber, intention, and the harmony of space." Korte's main current influence? R. Buckminster Fuller, who also made a lasting impression on another Portland designer, Adam Arnold, whose geodesic tailoring details are the result of studying Mr. Fuller's famous geodesic dome. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in Korte's style.
