Wall sculpture: A three-dimensional construction designed to be hung on the wall. Suitable for both beginning and advanced students, this workshop will employ the simplest of materials: foam board, a hot glue gun and painting with minimal color. The workshop will focus on:
- Cutting and assembling shapes to create a high relief composition
- Discovering and employing the elements which make up a dynamic composition
- Observing and incorporating negative space in design
- Learning to improvise and be inventive as ideas are developed.
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.
