Subconcious Surreal Sculptures (UPDATE)

The Nancy Fouts Creations Incite Personal Interpretations

— March 9, 2012 — Unique
Created out of spontaneous influences to reflect unbound ideas, Nancy Fouts's surreal sculptures revolve around the concept of significance within the subconscious and irrational. Encouraging personal interpretation, these sculptures are manifestations meant to incite an emotional response from the viewer. Completely unorthodox and perhaps mildly disturbing -- particularly in the case of a snail on a razer or the crow with an eye in its beak -- Nancy Fouts's surrealist artwork transgresses the comfortable in order to stimulate one's intuition.

Far from the product of photoshop, these models are entirely authentic and playfully composed. By no means do these portrayals lend themselves to a universal interpretation; Nancy Fouts's surreal sculptures are something that has stemmed from, and appeals to, the potential of the unbound imagination and the intimacy of the human psyche.
Trend Themes
1. Surreal Sculpture Art - The trend of creating eccentric and thought-provoking sculptures that evoke an emotional response, particular to the artworks reflection on the subconscious mind, provides opportunities for artists to innovate and experiment with unconventional 3D concepts.
2. Personal Interpretation Art - The trend of creating artworks that encourage personal interpretation and emotional response opens opportunities for artists to create unique works that speak to individual perspectives and experiences.
3. Authentic Art - The trend of creating authentic and playful artworks, as opposed to digital art, offers opportunities for artists to experiment with different mediums and to create tactile experiences that differ from the norm.
Industry Implications
1. Art - The art world, including galleries, museums, and art merchandise, can benefit from showcasing and promoting the trend of surrealist sculptures and encouraging artists to create works that evoke emotional response and personal interpretation.
2. Psychology - The trend of creating art that reflects on the subconscious and irrational, opens up opportunities for psychologists to investigate the emotional responses that art can provoke and how it can be used to understand the human psyche.
3. Interior Design - The trend of creating authentic sculptures and 3D art can disrupt the norm in interior design, providing opportunities for interior designers to add unconventional and thought-provoking art to different spaces.
