The Stragardt Pendant is Back!
Yvonne Felix is a Public and Community Artist. Her works express both the physical and meta physical experiences of a non visible disability. The 3D works range from large scale outdoor permanent installations to sensory indoor environments.
All works focus not on the object themselves but the environment and the engagement that occurs in their presence. "It is not what you see in the work that is important, it is what happens around it."
Felix bases her work and the ecstatic on function and process. Collaboration and community input is a key to her ability to successfully advocate and create works that clearly represent the audience. Connection to a work can only be achieved through empathy.
"When a viewer looks at my work, I want them to see themselves." Yvonne
