Sierra Pecheur has a lifelong love of sculls, bones, and creatures of land and sea so it's fitting that the LA artist has created a collection of ceramic wall sculptures in the form of the human heart, gifts as it were, to the planet and its inhabitants. Many of these hearts incorporate the skulls and objects (trash mostly) deposited by Southern California's tides onto the beaches where the artist walks every morning. They represent what is missing in our culture. They are Pecheur's demand to nurture and value, to look at what we are doing to our planet, its animals, and each other. The heart is a muscle.

Aleksandra Karpowicz is a London-based artist. Her entire work is inspired by her fascination with people and human nature. Her approach aims to reassert the beauty in the human form. She uses the female gaze to challenge wider concerns about the representation of bodies. Human physicality, sexuality, and identity in today’s mass-media age inspire her projects. Aleksandra seeks to depict difference across a wide social spectrum. She works against the current trend of unnatural digital manipulation of the body that supports mass media’s tendency to perpetuate one “ideal” form. The art she produces necessitates a dialogue that can allow for a wider acceptance of diversity and equality.
