By combining representational forms and imagery that denote the power, subjugation and performativity associated with gender, Sklar acts to implement her personal vision of an undefined spectrum of beauty and corporal strength using materials such as clay, paint, graphite and discarded sport objects to create tense assemblages.
Weir Farm’s Artist-in-Residence program (AIR) selects 12 artists to live and work at Weir Farm each year. To date, over 200 artists from throughout the U.S., as well as Tunisia, Germany, Australia, India and the Netherlands have participated in the AIR program. Visual artists apply for one month residencies in all media and diverse artistic points of view from traditional to experimental.
