Artist Statement

​

“My artistic journey is about humor and humanity: the universal truths of the human condition.  I generally gravitate towards animal and/or human forms when sculpting.  Each piece is about seeing life’s travels from different points of view in a somewhat whimsical way, while capturing the essence of each animal and/or individual.”

-Carla Liguori

Biography

​

Carla Liguori works with the materials of clay, needle felting, found objects, paint, and glazes to create mixed media anthropomorphic sculptures.  

​

Liguori’s work is done with humor and candor, and with an attention to details which show aspects of portraiture and art historical commentary.  

​

The artist’s use of textile with terra cotta, along with the depiction of delusional unsanctified forms, gives Liguori’s sculptures a twisted whimsy and a “rabbit-hole” of a narrative for the viewer to follow.
