"I’m constantly searching new ways to give a visible form to ideas and feelings in both of my sculptures and paintings. I prefer circulated vintage tablecloths etc. as a base for my paintings, because of their unique surface structure. Also, it gives me a feeling of connecting to past generations, creating layers of time by giving new life to old material, woven by hands long deceased."

Weiting Wei

"In my work, the paper lotus is inspired by the lotus pods without seeds. It brings forth a feeling of being left out. These empty lotus pods reference my experience with postnatal depression. My sculpture uses traditional elements to explore very personal, yet universal, experiences of motherhood."

Incision 3 - Print paper and wax 10 x 10 in. (11 pieces)

Weiting Wei (b. 1984, FuJian China) received her MFA in Visual Art from Columbus College of Art & Design in 2018. She is a multimedia artist creating works out of paper, wax, clay, and soap. Her sculptural work uses traditional elements to explore very personal, yet universal, experiences of motherhood. The lotus is used as a central theme to represent humanity. In Chinese culture, the lotus symbolises perfection, and ultimate purity of the heart and mind because it rises untainted and beautiful from the mud. Weiting creates numerous works that feature the lotus in different states to express this lifecycle and the beautiful struggles we experience as we grow.

Eva Cocco

"I am a self-taught sculptor and by far my favorite narrative tool is porcelain. Besides other things, I am a sci-fi geek and through my pieces, I talk about meandering cities and tortuous architectures, about heritage and ancestral stories, entropy and chaos, life and death in this and other planets."

N.025 - Stoneware 16 x 14 in.

Ceramic artist, Eva Cocco was born on the beautiful island of Sardinia, Italy where she grew up surrounded by nature and wild things. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Architecture Roma TRE University, a Master’s of Urban Design at Roma TRE University Italy (2007) and Master’s in Landscape Design at The City College of New York (2011). She lives and works in New York City.

“I strongly feel the nature of my island is in me and the sea I grew up with is always, sometimes even unconsciously, represented in my pieces. My passion for ceramic came early on, when I moved to Sag Harbor where I lived several years, I discovered this life-changing material and practice and it grew in me fast and exponentially. Now I am a self-taught sculptor and by far my favorite narrative tool is porcelain.”
