Sculptor Alison Sigethy prefers using recycled glass for her pieces—tempered or plate. She says she likes its soft colors. In her exhibition “Understory,” showing this month at the Torpedo Factory’s Art League, Sigethy has transformed materials like solar-panel glass and water-soaked wood into the undergrowth of a forest. In this detail from her piece ‘”Walnut Tree,” pastel fungi pop out as if they were bioluminescent. If exhibitions have morals, “Understory’s” include appreciating overlooked details, Sigethy says.
