MAKE WAVES

I’ve had a lot of enthusiasm about my Freeriders Flags recently and am super excited about the Pray for Surf one over at the Surfrider Hotel in Malibu, which has been featured in Vogue Paris, Goop, and a handful of lovely blogs. For those of you who are interested I’ve posted a little about that project below. If you'd be interested to explore the editions I have available, get in touch at sunerastudio@gmail.com

The FREERIDER FLAGS are a totem to those individuals who exemplify what Hunter S. Thompson was talking about when he spoke of ‘Mould Breaking Heroes; Living proof that the tyranny of the rat race is not yet final'. Inspired in part by an ex-San Francisco surfer who paddled around Kauai on a 9.0 surfboard, sleeps in a beach cave, and fishes his own food – and other like surfers and vanguards out there surfing/living for the love of life and true hedonic spirit.

It is completely my intention to directly participate in this philosophy, intently promote a freerider culture and illuminate that which already celebrates life beyond boundaries and to forge new experiences with that which does and does not yet exist.

Flags featured as part of the collection at Casa Shelter Half, The Surfrider Hotel, Lightning, and are currently available as part of the collection over at Tappan Collective in LA.

Pray for Surf

Super stoked to be one of the featured artists next to the one and only architect and artist Le Corbusier in the collection over at The Surfrider Hotel - a work of art in it's own right.  There is an interview with the owner of the hotel Emma Goodwin-Crowther talking her philosophy and artistic choices over at Rip & Tan.  Honored to be a part.  Pray for Surf and other Flag works a part of the collection over at Tappan Collective.  If you are interested in purchasing a work or a commission, get in touch.

I will be debuting new sculptural works that are part of my Reflections in Artifacts series,  a broad sculptural project initially intended as creating works based on primitive methods, philosophies, technologies and artifacts. There are so many ways of knowing and we are left only remnants.  

The series is intended to be in dialogue with the strong connection that runs through the endeavors of human beings and the many ways of knowing.  These new works in the series mark a development in concept, departing from tradition and form, creating new works based on bringing these ancestral inspirations into the modern age.
