Textile, Wire, Wood, Brass
Part of his Strangers series, Spencer Hansen's large fanciful sculpture is made of Mongolian sheep fur, recycled teak wood, brass, and wire. Mochi is able to stand up on his own without support.
Spencer Hansen graduated from San Francisco Art Institute in 2006. He is an interdisciplinary artist whose imagination and intellect intertwine to create playful art thoughtfully sourced, designed and constructed. Spencer works primarily with natural materials, hand making detailed art that is the antithesis of our disposable culture. Endlessly experimenting with processes and fueled by curiosity, his work flirts with the relationship between light and time, texture, weight and form. The resulting story often reveals a transformation of a common object into abstraction, undeniably familiar, simultaneously foreign.
