Oddlokken is a mixed media artist who’s work utilizes handmade papers, found imagery, embroidery, and hand-stitched gold embellishments. She combines imagery of indigenous flora and fauna of Louisiana, above ground cemeteries and tombs, as well as folktale characters to cross parish lines which create the Tiny, Little Fables of Louisiana. “My work, always allegorical and symbolic in nature, is an ongoing series which I’ve entitled Tiny, Little Fables that work together as a whole, but also stand alone. My subject matter is a push and pull on Cajun Folktales, New Orleans Legends, biblical text and my own magical realism childhood memories - created by my agoraphobic godmother,” says Nonney about her work.
Oddlokken has been an Artist Member of Baton Rouge Gallery since 2017. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Strykejernet Fine Arts Academy.
This exhibition is presented alongside the latest works from Jamie Baldridge, & Sam Corso. All works from these three artists are on view, free of charge during normal gallery hours (12 - 6 p.m., Tue - Sun), through October 31, 2019.
