11. Beth Katleman ("Folly" Sculpture) Born in Park Forest, Illinois, 1960 - "My sculptures and installations combine rococo decoration with icons from popular culture. I comb the flea markets in search of 1950's squeaky toys, corporate mascots, miniature buildings, cartoon characters and dolls. I cast these trinkets in clay, reinventing them and lavishing them with attention. My sculptures examine the nature of consumption and desire in our time.
