Wonder Exibit Poster

Terra Incognita, Just Ducky
(Duck with tea party hat)  
Susan Andrews and Carolyn Fellman,This piece was begun as an entry in a hat show where we were asked to provide our own hat stand.  You can see how carried away we get. We’ve found yellow is the color of optimism and ducks like this, do press on regardless.
Painted and printed cast paper, smashed housewares, carved & painted wood &found materials.




Wonder (noun); a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. “I stood in front of it, observing the intricacy of the work with the wonder of a child”.

“When one is invited into the house of Marilyn Keating, the studio of Eric Schultz, or the world created by The Oiseaux Sisters, wonder is the best word to describe how you feel.

This September, the Arts Council of Princeton’s Taplin Gallery will feature work from these artists, filling the space with kites, figures composed of scrap metal parts, paper mache birds, wooden pull toys, and so many other one-of-a-kind elements. Like a kid in a toy store, you won’t be able to stop smiling, imagining how all of these items came into being.

Oiseaux Life

The Oiseaux Sisters, Susan Andrews and Carolyn Fellman, creates work that incorporates humor, movement, and metaphor.  Their mixed media materials include paper, tin, clay, cloth, carved and painted wood, and found objects. They have created a series of figurative, often biographical or mythological, figures that range from small to larger than life.

The Oiseauxs honor attics, outbuildings, and collections both random and methodical. To them, all is a story. All objects are in conversation with each other: sometimes the subject, sometimes the object, sometimes the verb. But always talking. They love to make their work and are always asking, "Are we there yet? What is the journey and what is the destination? What is truth and what is fiction? What is memory? What is desire?"






Black line

The Oiseaux Sisters are two mixed-media artists whose work incorporates humor, movement and metaphor. The materials they use include paper, tin, clay, cloth, carved and painted wood, and found objects. They have created a series of figurative, often biographical or mythological figures/ cupboards which range from small to larger than life size as well as many other figurative pieces which tell stories. The Oiseaux Sisters have made and marketed one of a kind craft as well as exhibiting in many solo and group shows around the country.
