Nita Mehnert

Nita Mehnert is an artist who works in many media. Especially important to her is the reuse of discarded materials to form beautiful items which are also a statement about the condition of our existence today. In her own words: "As an artist and a woman, I see my work as a statement about the human condition, specifically, what it means to be a woman today. ...I feel it is my responsibility to draw attention to the state of the world we all must live in, a world often drowning in its own refuse, both in terms of human misery and discarded waste."
Some of her works display a sense of humor, pointing out the absurd in our everyday lives, while others delve into a darker side. Fanciful reconstructions from 'refuse' derive from her ability to see everything as grist for the art mill, even mundane objects.
Her work displayed here is for sale through Copperhead Studio. All thumbnails are links either to more items of the type or to larger photos of the object. Call or email for more specific information. Be sure to reference the item of your interest.
