Sandy Skogland.

fishinstal1Another female sculpture, her work based around the surreal and absurd, Skoglands work is the most imaginative installation piece i have seen that creates a dream like effect. She says her work is a mixture of artificial and natural much like her life, craving the artificial happiness life offers and its counterpart of the natural selection of choices. Her work and scenes create problems for the viewer and conflict with the reality that is before them,  fishes swimming around in a bedroom , the reality is crossed as it is in the dream state, the fishes swarm at the bed and enforce this idea through placement by skogland. The contrasting colours not only highlight the moments of chaos and disruption in the scenes but divide them as if life is surrounded by these moments that go unnoticed. She is my all time favorite! Enjoy her website.
