Often the concept for my sculptures is born from the material alone, and “Devil’s Ivy” was no exception. I found 2 yards of a beautiful hand-dyed velvet at a salvage recycle supply store in Philadelphia and in Philadelphia’s Fabric Row I came across a leather store with scraps for sale. I held onto these materials for years knowing they were too regal to utilize in haste. Eventually, they perfectly cumulated to form a sculpture reflecting my many live indoor pothos plants.
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
