Watershed | Liz Sexton

Silverwood Park presents Watershed, a collection of paper mâché sculptures of wildlife that inhabit waterways from the source of the Mississippi to the seas.

The accompanying images of animal masks worn in a human-shaped world invite the viewer to explore our connection to nature and consider the far-reaching impact we have on aquatic ecosystems.

Liz Sexton is a St. Paul-based artist working primarily with paper mâché, a medium she prefers for its versatility and accessibility. Inspired by the natural world and animals in particular, she creates large sculptures and wearable masks that explore our connection to, or disconnection from, nature. Her work has been featured in T: The New York Times Style Magazine, The Guardian, and Vogue Singapore, and she most recently exhibited at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.

Showing concurrently with Echo Trail | Laura Ahola-Young
