Natalia Franco is the sculptor and creator of Goop World—an ever-expanding realm of characters, design, and explorative sculpture. She uses materials like ceramic, paints, resins, steel, foam, and faux plants to create, finding no end to the expansive nature of sculpture. Viewers find themselves drawn in by comforting colors, fantastical creatures, and an emotion that feels so familiar yet impossible to describe. Natalia brings a gentle neutrality and subtle humor to complex emotions, giving viewers a place to introspect and observe. Who are you, Earthling?
