Description

WOVEN FORMS: BETWEEN PAINTING AND SCULPTURE
Vanesa Gingold
6 sessions >> Wednesdays, October 16-November 20
7:00-10:00pm, Studio 105, $295

In this course we will build armatures for sculptures or wall reliefs using materials and techniques commonly associated with textiles, such as braiding, weaving, wrapping, hand sewing, coiling and twined basketry. We will also consider how color and surface interact with sculptural forms. Working at the intersection of painting, sculpture, and craft, you will have the opportunity to develop skills and explore new dimensions in your practice.
____
Vanesa Gingold’s sculptures create dynamic interiors and exteriors, an interplay of concealing and revealing, of surface and structure. Delicate handmade paper stretches and tears over intricately constructed armatures, suggesting states of genesis or decay.

Gingold received her MFA from UC Santa Barbara and degrees in Art and Psychology from UC Davis. Vanesa has exhibited broadly, recently in the exhibitions “Volupté” in San Francisco, “Everything All at Once”, and “Desire Trails” in Los Angeles. She has worked with numerous galleries, museums and organizations, including the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Creativity Explored, San Francisco Arts Commission, SF City College and the University of California as an artist, curator and teacher.
