Much of my work is an exploration of man’s relationship with nature. Every atom that composes our body is recycled energy; as Carl Sagan so eloquently stated, “The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” The star studded spinal column form, in this particular piece, represents humans in their origin among early vertebrates and in their evolution from quadruped to biped.
Emily Schnellbacher Bean is a soft-sculpture and installation artist with a penchant for process, a passion for color, and a fetish for fabric. She references forms and elements drawn from the natural world and the human body, each of which intermingles throughout her work creating playful moments of abstraction. Bean uses the supple physicality of the media and a bright palette to compose playful assemblages that are jovial while hinting at an underlying nostalgia for adolescence and warm sun-soaked days. Her process of sewing and handling repeated forms, each rendered in painstaking detail, reflects a meditative and craft-oriented approach to art-making.More About Artist
