For millennia, plaster has attracted artists through its remarkable versatility. Derived from ground or powdered limestone mixed with water, plaster was used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, although it was associated with architecture and painting as much as with sculpture. Poured into molds, it can replicate three-dimensional objects. As a material worked directly, it lends itself to both additive and subtractive approaches: artists can add more plaster to a sculpture to model it further, but they can also cut it apart or carve into it, as if it were stone.

Los Angeles-based artist Kathryn Andrews (American, born 1973) mines the American cultural landscape to investigate relationships between popular culture and power structures, in particular how images and brands are used to establish authority. Andrews's work, which combines found objects, historic images, and references to art movements such as Pop Art, minimalism, and finish fetish aims to show how meaning is contingent on context.
