Fantastical Clay Sculptures
“I work mainly in Premo polymer clay and wire, but experiment with other clays, resins, and fiberglass. I also enjoy playing with mirrors and spray paint,” comments sculptor Meredith Dittmar in an interview at Fecal Face. Her work is composed in 3D with strange figures and animals in surreal settings.
Notes about the artist (from bio):
Meredith Dittmar is an artist living and playing in Portland OR. Born near Boston Mass, she grew up in a world of pet pigs, horses, hay-forts and spy games . Follow this with an education in computer science, a career in interactive design, a compulsive need to create, and a drive to Seek and you get the major elements of her person and work.
Dittmars human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness . Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space. Dittmar believes it is this space we recognize in ourselves, and through convening in that space, the interconnectedness of all things is revealed. She sees the act of spontaneous artistic creation as part of a larger practice of being present, and a way to better understand herself and reality.
