Skoglund art

Sandy Skoglund is a photographer and an installation artist.  I would hope you all know what a photographer is, but maybe you don't know what an installation artist is.  An installation artist is someone who basically creates large art projects that encompass a room or the room itself can be considered art.  These projects are usually very large and take several months to create and sometimes it takes that long just to set them up.

Sandy has combined both of her art forms to create installation pieces that she then photographs into artwork that can be sold.  She occasionally adds real people to her created people for her photo shoots.  She also loves to use bright colors with dark colors and edible items in some of her work.


This one is called Radioactive Cats.  The man and the woman are real people, but the cats have all been sculpted and painted that bright green color.

So which work is your favorite?  What do you like about her work and what do you find different or unique?  If you could do a project like this, what exactly would you do?

  4. This type of art is interesting,I've never seen anything like it. When i look at it I think of the movie house of wax for some reason. These paintings are very unique I personally dont really like them but they're still pretty cool!

  13. this is weird. it lookes messy but neat, i like the bacon one, it took me while to figure out what the medium was.

  14. This is a very odd type of art. I think that the bacon one is kind of a waste of time and bacon. The Cheese puff one is a little cool.

  15. This artist has a strange way of expressing his artistic ability. My favorite one is the bacon people and chair. I also like the one made of Cheetos its a unique medium.
