A collaboration between Ingrid Restemayer and Arizona artist Christy Puetz to create a whole new environment and creative experience within the LUX. Puetz creates unique carved foam creatures and animals that have intricately beaded surfaces. Holding poses that seem frozen in time, each piece is covered with combinations of glass beads, felted wool, dried paint slabs, silk cocoons and other found elements. Restemayer’s latest works include gentle etchings of beastly animals like buffalo, elephants and octopi collaged and hand-embroidered.  The etchings themselves are intimate studies of individual animals’ expressions and organic movements captured in a still, illustrated moment of individual personality.
