THE FOCUS

STUDIO VISIT: JENNIFER CRESCUILLO

JUL. 21, 2022

"I explore the visual language of age in my artwork through everyday objects past and present. Why does an object look 'old' or 'new'? Our intimate relationships with these objects and our willingness to immediately discard items once they become obsolete are dominant themes in much of my work. The specific memories and nostalgia that each object can trigger is an important element in that visual language. I use the actual technological objects both as models and inspiration for sculpture, and as positives coupled with mold making, casting and hand finishing to emphasize a connection to natural fossilization, and ancient techniques." - Jennifer Crescuillo, 2022
