Description Neeka Allsup was born in the back of her parent's toy store by home birth in Austin, Texas. Being an artist was encouraged from a young age, and she spent her childhood in the toy store along with her two sisters painting, making jewelry from things they found in the street, and helping in the store. She went to an absurdly expensive art school in Chicago, worked and lived in a gallery, started her own gallery, and worked in a bronze foundry. After moving back home and working at the family toy store, she moved to Saint Louis to be close to her partner’s family. In her studion, she regards herself as lucky enough to paint all day, every day.

Emily Elhoffer’s work is composed of plump, vibrantly textured soft sculptures whose forms are abstracted from fatty bellies, thighs, and other figurative parts. She explores ideas of body image, body dysphoria, and our cultural conversation around beauty normativity. Her art glamorizes fat, irregularity, and non-normative forms; the sculptural objects she makes are visual reminders to worship your body. Emily makes offerings of spandex and tinsel, glitter fat rolls and crushed velvet, celebrating the body through art in its multitude of forms, colors, and textures.
