Animal Oddities: Dreamy and Dark Sculptures by Erika Sanada

Erika Sanada - Curiosity

The innocence of Erika Sanada’s animal sculptures is somewhat deceiving. They resemble gentle spirits with glowing white eyes and pale skin, but each one is plagued by dark dramas and terrifying anomalies; canines tear into each other’s flesh, small creatures lie dead, and bodies fuse and mutate. Naming her current body of work “Odd Things,” Sanada draws inspiration from bad memories and personal anxieties, confronting and overcoming them by birthing her twisted yet fearless creatures.
