Fantastical Animals Straight Out Of A Dark Fairytale By Surreal Sculptor Erika Sanada

Erika Sanada’s new exhibition, titled ‘Meet Me Halfway’, is currently hosted at Corey Helford Gallery, Los Angeles from April 7 through May 5, 2018 – Erika Sanada is a California based artist and her early inspirations stemmed from creatures and characters of dark films. Watching films were way of escaping from her bitter childhood. She creates hairless ceramic creatures and they are often adorable, but also have bizarre shape. ‘My work reflects the weird and the creepy. I am fascinated with the dark side… I have constant anxieties and I worry about every little thing. It’s hard to take control of them, so I’m trying to be civil with them. I negotiate, compromise, and adjust. So meet me halfway.’
