On View: May 14–June 3
Gallery artist Erika Sanada returns to Modern Eden in her annual tradition with a new solo exhibition entitled Home. On view will be new and selected works featuring her large scale, multi-figure ceramic sculptures, along with a number of exciting pieces selected by the artist and curators which have migrated "home" from exhibitions near and far. The series represents some of her most tender and delicate works to date.
Erika Sanada's early inspirations stemmed from creatures and characters of horror films. Watching these stories were a way for her to escape unpleasant realities during childhood. She creates intricate, hairless ceramic creatures—often adorable but also unsettling and bizarre. Her artwork has been published in Hi-Fructose Magazine, Hey! Magazine and Beautiful Bizarre Magazine and in the permanent collection of the Crocker Museum of Art. Sanada is represented by Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco where the artist currently lives and works.
