Cozy Up to Fun Fur Art

March 29th, 2010

Artist Amy Caterina is at it again.  We first blogged about the mixed media artist here when we heard about her Pseudo-Sod, grassy looking material knit from Fun Fur.  She has used the material to create topiary animals and even a car cover! Her most recent exhibit, part of Actions, Conversations, and Intersections at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, extended the concept by creating an inviting forest scene, complete with deer and grass against forest images. Amy uses different colors of Fun Fur to represent different stages of grass life, but unlike real grass the “faux” Pseudo-Sod won’t be itchy.

Laying in a fuzzy field of “grass” sounds like a wonderful way to spend a little time!  Click here to see a video of Amy lounging in her Pseudo-Sod Forest.  The exhibit has ended, and I can’t wait to see (and maybe experience) what she comes up with next.  This summer she has a residency scheduled at the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, CA.
