Sonja Schenk 

Sonja Schenk is a multi-disciplinary artist from Los Angeles. She began with video installations and has since turned to other types of installation, painting, and sculpture. Her work explores the intersection of humankind and the natural world through traditional, technological, and transformative processes. She exhibits both locally and internationally and has created several large, site-specific installations. She has been artist-in-residence at Cerritos College in California, the Thomas McKeon Center for Creativity in Tulsa, and the U.S. National Park system. Influenced by early mentors Allan Kaprow, DeeDee Halleck, and Manny Farber, her work relies on a strong grounding in conceptual thought that is then translated to various media.
