Christa Toole’s work explores the subjects of space, energy and transformation. Using paint, thread, wax and other materials in her work, the work evokes the concept of the transmutation of energy. What can at once refer to the micro levels of biology can also represent the macro levels of space and both of their infinite complexities. The subject matter simultaneously highlights the similarities in form of the two and underscores the persistent yet intricate laws of the universe. Energy is a constant in all levels. Energy moves from one realm into another, its properties may change but the force remains invariable. Her latest work explores the ephemeral nature of life, the environment and humanity.
