Brass, Textile, Wire, Silver, Ceramic
Part of his Strangers series, Spencer Hansen's large fanciful sculpture made of ceramic, raw diamonds, silver-plated brass, wire, and Himalayan goat fur. Onna is not meant to stand on its own.
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.
