Sydni Gause is a visual artist from Leesburg, Florida. Having been raised in the South with a fairly conservative upbringing, Gause is in constant negotiation between cultural archetypes and identity. Her interdisciplinary approach to sculpture and installation investigates issues with America’s current social and political climate, specifically power structures, gender inequality, and psychological behaviors. Gause was a 2011 nominee for the Sculpture Magazine Outstanding Student Achievement Award and had her second solo exhibition “Florida Lottery” in 2016 at Channel to Channel Gallery in Nashville, TN. Gause received her BFA from Watkins College of Art, Design & Film in 2012, and is currently enrolled as a MFA Candidate in Sculpture and Dimensional Studies at Alfred University where her work continues to examine the role of women in America.
