Sydni Gause is an interdisciplinary artist and Adjunct Professor in Sculpture at Alfred University. Originally from Florida, Gause received her BFA from Watkins College of Art Design & Film, and her MFA in Sculpture & Dimensional Studies at Alfred University.
Raised in the American South, Gause’s work investigates the differences between cultural expectations and identity. Her approach to sculpture and installation responds to issues like power structures and gender inequality that begin in the home. Working with text and gendered iconography Gause exposes her oppressive truths and begins to challenge the viewers conditioned constructs of both a woman’s role in society and in the home.
Gause’s work has been exhibited nationally with the artist collectives: SHE BENDS: Women in Neon, San Fransisco; Material Girls XOXO in Austin, Texas and SAME in Brooklyn, New York. In 2018, Gause was invited to have a solo exhibition Addressing you and I; Addressing we, at Lock Haven University in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania and is scheduled for a collaborative exhibition at the Federation Auditorium in Hornell, New York this Spring.
