The is a sculptural wall tapestry that can also serve as a site-specific installation. The first image shows “Tiny Universe” hanging at Detroit’s N’namdi Center Gallery. The second image is a detail view. The third and fourth images show “Tiny Universe” installed atthe Ann Arbor Art Center’s Aquarium Gallery, first in daylight and then illuminated at night. I originally developed this piece for display in a public space where viewers from every age and walk of life can identify with and find joy in it – either through the imagery, colorful palette, or familiarity with the material. My ultimate goal is to inspire viewers in developing a greater reverence for the natural world and desire to preserve it—not only for the sake of its beauty, but for human’s dependence on its resources.
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
