Erika Sanada’s ceramic sculptures of puppies and other animals, featured in HF Vol. 31, are sweet yet a little chilling. Her surrealistic pieces give animals a dreamlike quality that draws the viewer in. Their disquieting nature is a reflection of Sanada’s own fears and anxieties in her daily life, which she expresses through her artwork. In her artist statement, Sanada calls this her “dark side”. Sanada is looking to finally conquer these feelings in her new series, which she is now preparing preparing for her next exhibition at Modern Eden Gallery.
