Wall sculpture: a fusion of three-dimensional construction and painting, designed to be hung on the wall
Suitable for both beginning and advanced students, this workshop will explore the myriad of possibilities that can arise from employing the simplest of materials: cardboard, a hot glue gun and some paint.
Students will be encouraged to be creative and to experiment as they work. The workshop will guide students as they:
- Break out of the confines of a traditional rectangular frame
- Cut and assemble shapes to create a high relief composition
- Observe and incorporate negative space in their design
- Apply color to their work for an added layer of complexity
Jenne M. Currie was born in Woodstock, New York and is an alumnus of the League. She began her career as a painter, later branching out into welded steel and bronze sculpture. She spent two summers working at the Tomassi Bronze foundry in Pietrasanta, Italy, where she learned the lost wax technique of casting. She later developed her favored technique of wooden wall sculptures, fusing her love of painting with sculpture. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the Northeast in such venues as the National Academy, the Salander O'Reilly Gallery, the Seligmann Gallery, and the Schenectady Museum, all in New York; and the Silvermine Guild Art Center in Connecticut. Currie has had years of experience teaching art in and around NYC.
