May brings two new exhibitions to Stranger Factory!

May brings two new exhibitions to Stranger Factory!

Japanese artist Erika Sanada presents several new expressive sculptures that she considers both odd and dreamy. Her softly bizarre ceramic creatures make their first debut at Stranger Factory in May with her solo exhibition “COPE.” As autobiographical spirit animals, her unique canines allow her to cope with her own anxiety and serve as empowering alter egos.

She recently earned her MFA in Ceramics at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

“My work reflects the weird and the creepy; I am fascinated with the dark side. “Odd Things” are my current body of work and I use ceramic for making bizarre creatures. They have extra body parts such as multiple arms, legs, teeth and ears.  These are how I express my sensitive mind. There are two reasons I create misshapen and abnormal work. One is my bitter childhood and the second is my constant anxieties.”
