Isabel Samaras pays respect to the honey badger, who spins wax while imparting an air of grounded mellowness. Samaras' work spills over with rich narrative that is highlight by the artist's classical techniques while referencing pop culture. Her latest exhibition, Heavy Gretel (as part of Flight and Fable, with work by Sarah Folkman and Krista Huot), features all sorts of woodland creatures who find themselves in unusual, yet endearing, situations.
Artist: Isabel Samaras
Heavy Gretel runs through June 8, 2011 at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City.
