Sandra Diniz’ Portugese site is a bit of a mystery to me. First the name, BigNeck, and the jumbled translation threw me for a loop. But her color sense, her wild abandon, the media mixes and the strange interplay of themes are exciting.
For instance, Sandra’s "Bird Flu" necklace is made with handmade polymer clay beads – roosters, ducks, fried egg, baked chicken, and other wood and paper maché beads as well as crocheted flowers. Check out the unselfconscious playful pieces throughout her site.
Many thanks to Lisa Clarke for leading us to this emerging artist.
