Erika Sanada is an artist based in San Francisco, USA. Her project entitled ‘Odd Things’, is the reflection of her constant anxieties and bitter memories of her childhood.
Fascinated with the dark side, Erika composes bizarre ceramic creatures which lie somewhere between the grotesque and adorable.
Erika’s creatures have suffered mutations having extra body parts such as multiple arms, legs, teeth or tails, and a creepy, zombified looking. Despite their eerie appearance, her creatures possess a special, angelic innocence.
There is a tension in Erika’s work which reflects her everyday struggle to find the balance between joy and sorrow.
