womb with a view

Bay Area artist Martha Sue Harris has created a series of multimedia works inspired by her own pregnancy. Expecting a baby girl, the artist's figurative installation portrays womb-like bubbles filled with plush fabric, yarn constructions and little fetal creatures.

According to her website, "Martha Sue grew up the only child of metalwork artists in a small house in the outskirts of Tucson, AZ." She attended The California College of Arts, where she received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in film, video and painting. She continues to be inspired by "the flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert," which "gave her an eye for the strange and wondrous in nature."
