Sympathy for Mrs Crabby

Sympathy for Mrs Crabby

materials used

  • female crab parts
  • found objects

Naturally the found materials inspire a formal relationship between the parts that become all about design: the small forms become integral to the whole, the colors are arranged to unify and other elements are used with intention. Of even greater interest is the implied narrative. Sympathy for Mrs. Crabby is a form made of many parts of female crabs that came before her, certainly an idea that I would explore in my sculptural series “49 Sisters”

This piece is part of the Women Are Everywhere series by Karen Sam Norgard. It's a reproduction of an original three-dimensional creation. It was crafted on location of natural items, photographed, left to be found by passers by and to eventually return to nature.
