amy arnold & kelsey sauber olds

Medium: Wood

Booth #: LN30C

Artist bio: Just as Amy and Kelsey's collaboration relies upon a balance between their different sensibilities, personalities, skills and working styles, so too do their finished pieces walk a fine line. Their sculpture explores the balance between human and animal; wild and tame; crude and refined; movement and stability; humor and seriousness; adult and child and toy and art object. In creating their wood sculptures, the artists gravitate toward different parts of the process, and the pieces are passed back and forth accordingly. The shaping, refining and texturing of basswood bodies and body parts is done with a combination of power and hand tools. The pieces are finished with layered and sanded milk paint.
