Hearts made of reptilian, scales, and water printed fabric illustrate human’s possible aquatic ancestry. We are classified as mammalian Tetrapods, which are believed to have evolved from boney fish during the Devonian Era. The lineage of species from which we evolved is unclear and highly debated among paleontologists. Yet, despite the millions of years and theoretical evolutionary paths, there are many observable parallels in our anatomy and genetic makeup to that of marine species today.
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
