good weather also presents many of the original crafted objects composed from combining an array
of materials such as paper, textile, and stones to mundane everyday items from fruits and rubber
bands to car tires.
meticulously created with analog handicraft instead of using a computer, sarah illenberger’s
richly-detailed work opens up new perspectives on seemingly familiar, iconographically-charged
forms and content. she expertly avoids imbuing her materials and subjects with artificial significance
or forcing a meaning upon them. instead, illenberger’s penetrating creative eye reveals their true
essence—one that has usually remained hidden just under the surface from our fleeting and
routine everyday glances.
