Congratulations to Deana Bada Maloney for winning Best in Show in the 3-Dimensional category of 7th Annual Animal Kingdom Art Exhibition.

According to Deana, “I have been an observer of nature all my life. I am continually awestruck at the beauty of the natural world and the magic and mystery in every living thing. My work is a study of living forms, celebrating the structure of how something is made along with the transcendental presence of the subject.”

Deanna has a BFA in Drawing and Painting from the Art Institute of Chicago, with a strong focus in anatomy and scientific illustration. She found sculpture to be another vehicle for her in which she is able to express the beauty and stories woven in nature and the world around us.

Deanna tells a story in each of her pieces using symbolism in found materials that she incorporates into her work whether it is from the subject’s natural surroundings or a component of the story.

She uses a method of using oxides during the final firing of her pieces to capture all the marks made in the creation of the piece. This makes her sculptures look like 3D drawings harkening back to her strong drawing roots.
