Artist Biography:
"Through the combination of familiar forms, such as the figure, and the manipulation of its conventional standards of representation, I hope to reach viewers in a visceral way. The familiarity of the human body is effective because it can be related to in an immediate, instinctive way. When out expectations are disrupted, however, the work begins to challenge ideas normally taken for granted. Working with unexpected combinations of materials and ideas, I seek to analyze current modes of thinking that take for granted what is correct or acceptable, and to foster uncertainty in those assumptions. By presenting an alternative 'normal' I hope to challenge uninvolved and non-critical states-of-mind, promoting an idea that our questions may be far more interesting than our current idea of correctness or truth." -Sara Weimer
