Although Sarah Knouse's sculptures are rather creepy-looking, there is more thought put behind each artwork other than creating a scare. In fact, the eerie presence of her creations is simply a byproduct Sarah Knouse's exploration of themes of ornamentation and superficial grandeur in domestic settings.

Based in Philadelphia, Sarah Knouse previously worked as a faux-finish painter and interior design assistant. She uses this experience in her mixed-media artwork. By questioning the meaning of the household, Sarah Knouse creates surreal settings that transcend our perception of daily life and reality.

I especially like how Sarah Knouse addresses our culture’s superficial ideals about status and identity through decoration. The interaction between possession and person is fascinating, so much so that we end up leading a dream life of sorts. Stats for Creepy-Crawly Sculptures Trending: Older & Buzzing
