About Me

Bio

Eden Knutilla (pronouns: they/them) is a queer artist/illustrator, based in Oakland, California.

Eden Knutilla is a queer, non-binary visual artist who creates found material sculptures, paintings, and drawings. Their work investigates intersections of queerness, trash, spirituality and capitalism. They explore trash as a political object and seek to bring awareness to how easily capitalism numbs us to disposal, both of objects and people. Each sculpture is carefully constructed, and the individual pieces of trash come together to create narratives that inspire different ways of considering what we might have seen as disposable. Influenced by Cecelia Vicuna’s precarios and Greg Kennedy’s Ontology of Trash, they see working with trash as an opportunity to re-frame our responsibility to our objects and each other — an opportunity to see the inherent worth in everything and everyone that exists far beyond the ability to generate profit.


Eden is currently working to attain a Post-Bacc in Visual Arts at UC Berkeley Extension (expected Fall 2019)



Expertise

When working with clients, my goal is to collaboratively create a piece that means something to both of us. I love experimenting with different styles and techniques to bring a vision to life. 

In my personal practice, I explore different ways to represent physical and emotional space.
