Sunny Gandy

Sunny Gandy is currently a freshman at SAIC and is studying in the Fibers and Material Studies and Fashion departments. Their art consists of imagery associated with the idea of cuteness and childhood, such as stuffed animals and dolls, and morphing those things into sculptures or clothing. They have a particular interest in methods such as quilting, embroidery, needle felting, zine making, and jewelry making/design. Sunny is also a Chicago native and regularly engages in the local art community outside of school through showing support to local artists at gallery shows and vendor fairs. The work displayed is inspired by Sunny’s time at Catholic all girls school, where they satirize and make recognizable catholic imagery, such as the rosary and cross, campy.
