Sandra Ono is a San Francisco based sculptor who assembles everyday materials (Q-tips, rubber bands and aluminum foil) into beautiful and curious biomorphic shapes that transcend their materials. Her media, carefully chosen consumer goods typically used on the body, subtly refer back to the body and reference the micro and the macro of everyday consumerism.
Sandra Ono earned an M.F.A. from Mills College in Oakland, CA in 2008 and a B.F.A. from the University of California, Davis in 2003. She has exhibited through out California including: Electric Works Gallery, San Francisco, CA; the Kala Art Institute, Berkeley, CA; the di Rosa Art Preserve, Napa, CA; the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, San Jose, CA and has been awarded the Kala Art Institute Fellowship Award, a Vermont Studio Center Full Fellowship Award supported by the Joan Mitchell Foundation and the Jay DeFeo Merit Award. This will be her first exhibition inTexas.
