Arden’s sculptural process consists of manipulating plywood to create unique forms that carry a sense of movement, physicality and mass. She investigates structures that are at once organic and intuitive. Skeletal forms serve as inspiration - bones and unseen parts of the body referenced in each unique sculpture. After assembling the pieces, the shape alters from the body references. She embraces the change of form that comes out of process and labor, a progression that allows her to just “go with it.” 

Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 13. 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.   

Born and raised in North Carolina, Arden was a Savannah College of Art student and Colorado State University graduate that currently resides in Crested Butte, Colorado. Arden received a BFA with an emphasis in sculpture with an Anthropology minor. Arden combines her interest in Anthropology with her art, by referencing the study of the human and animal body that are emphasized in her sculptures.
