Becca Barolli

Sculptor |  San Francisco Bay Area, CA

Artist in residence April 2019

"I make abstract sculptures using craft techniques like weaving and braiding with raw industrial materials like rebar tie wire and recycled tire soaker tubing. My work is very labor-intensive, fueled by a compulsive need for repetition and reverence. Through endurance based processes I repeat stereotypical feminine gestures that defy the initial industrial function

of these materials. My work involves variations in tension and density to consider vulnerability and explore the differences of being open or closed off, relaxed or uptight without passing judgment on either condition."
