Sandra Ono

Sandra Ono creates sculptures that appear as mutated corporeal forms rooted in a long fascination with cellular structures and scientific renderings. Oddly, these organic forms are created from mass-produced consumer goods such as ear-plugs, cotton swabs, black latex balloons and tin foil. Working with repetitive gestures, Sandra amasses biomorphic forms from materials that are methodically built up cell by cell. This material-based process also becomes a physical documentation of time and activity. Sandra’s work has been presented at Mills College Art Museum, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art and the di Rosa Preserve. She was the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation award in 2010.
