sculptures as animals as people....

Loving the playful and strange work of artist Laura Ford. Her practice is very mixed media but she often turns to fiber...

I love that she describes her work as:

sculptures dressed up as animals which are dressed up as people.

Strangely, I see what she means.

In some ways her hybrid figures remind me of Kiki Smith's work but then usually Laura's work is much less dark and more fairytale-esque.

Since scale seems to play a big part, I wish I could see some of the work in person.

She does not have a website but you can read a bit more about her work here.
