Sayuri Sasaki Hemann

Sayuri Sasaki Hemann is an artist whose recent work involves installations that depict aquatic scenes and creatures, things that she often draws her inspiration from. She creates her artwork from sewn fabric and felted wool. These images are from a recent installation in the Portland International Airport. I think that it is amazing how she creates such an ethereal, intricate environment just with her hands and simple materials. It is also interesting how she places these environments in unexpected places, such as the airport. Sayuri currently has a show at the Paper Nest here in Iowa City.
