Angie Zielinski is a cross-disciplinary artist, pulling from the influence of abstraction while exploring the possibilities of installation. She received a B.F.A. from Millikin University in Illinois and an M.F.A. from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Zielinski’s work has been shown nationally in juried exhibitions, including solo exhibitions in Toledo, Ohio and Boise, Idaho. In 2012 she took a position as Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Arizona.
Her current work investigates events that can be interpreted as celebratory or violent, depending on personal and cultural beliefs. Circuses, fireworks, patriotic parties and bomb zones are made up of complex inter-working systems; moments of fragility, stability, danger and awe are visible in each. Through the manipulation of materials and attention to intimate details, Zielinski explores specific aspects of these events and actions.
