Wall Blob I

Wall Blob I, foam and oil on wood, 4" x 6" x 4", 2004

Lael Sale moved from Texas to Iowa to pursue an MFA in painting at the University of Iowa. She will complete her degree in May 2005.

About the artwork, Lael Sale writes: I make forms and spaces that are physical manifestations of my psychological and emotional states. Content is found through visceral relationships between the body and material. Pink and crimson oil paint, wax, sand, hair, and latex are experienced first sensually, and then realized intuitively. I am interested in the way these materials can be manipulated to mimic or reference the body, allowing a way for me to metaphorically gut the inside of my mind onto the canvas.
