ABOUT THE ARTIST: "Mariangela Tan is a Brooklyn based artist and designer. Her themes often include explorations of sentimentality through tangible objects, and frequently crossover into the world of toys and consumables. Her current work showcases wool fiber and crepe paper that has been transformed into delicate floral arrangements with the mutation of fasciations that reflect her own personal transformations. These wild unpredictable changes cannot be controlled or directed in the natural world. So often inspired by the wonders and oddities of nature, she uses them as symbols of transformation that we can all relate to.”

”Reconstructing these mutations under glass allows the audience an opportunity to examine the triggers of sentiment and obsession that may have once been buried or lost. Their rediscovery represents a very personal evolution for the artist that connects her with the observer on an emotional level.
Mariangela's work has been showcased in galleries and boutiques across the US and has attracted the attention of collectors globally. Along with her artist husband Justin Alan Volpe, they create heirloom quality collectibles and pop culture inspired goods collectively and independently."
