It often happens that I’ll discover the most interesting of people in the most random of places. That’s how I stumbled upon the work of Carla Biondi, a San Francisco-based sculptor I met recently at an Ana Mandara party for the beta launch of jetsetextra.com, a social networking travel website.
It turns out Biondi’s intriguing work is currently on display at the Art People gallery in downtown San Francisco through March 31. The “Femme Totale” exhibit includes a diverse display of Biondi’s ceramic torsos, which pay tribute to the female form and fashion.
The 41-year-old Argentina native says it was only natural that fashion would work its way into her pieces (several of which incorporate leather laces into a corset design) because of her lifelong interest in the subject.
