Artist Jennifer Hunold has a piece in from the tongue... and I have featured her work before. So I was curious when she mentioned the work of her friend Sierra Furtwangler. And when she sent me some images I could see why she was a fan. Sierra's work is wacky and wild and weird but oh so awesome.
Sierra does not have a website so only a few images to share and no statement to read but... her work is fantastical and freaky all at the same time. She morphs 3 dimensional animal like shapes together into flat paintings & surfaces and splashes onto the wall and floor. I would love to know more of what she is working with conceptually. But at one point she was quoted to state:
I want to make ugly things look beautiful, and I want to make monsters into heroes.
I especially like how she comes off the wall into 3 dimensions and moved down onto the floor in a more 2 dimensional way. You can totally see how she is influenced by pop art with her bright flat colors and use of repetition. Super cool. I cannot wait to see more.
hopefully she will submit to the Textile Center exhibit.
