Judy Vienneau, jvienneauart.com, is a mixed media artist who lives and works in St. Petersburg, Florida. Her work explores the world of three-dimensional mixed media sculpture with a finely tuned graphic sensibility. The twisted representational wire forms are infused with a bold linear thrust, informed with a commentary on contemporary times.
By combining training in traditional sculptural techniques in metal, clay and stone with a concurrent background in graphic design and illustration, Vienneau has demonstrated her expertise as a wire sculptor, reminiscent of Alexander Calder. Her most recent body of work combines acrylic paintings, collage and fabric as backgrounds for wire figures; these new works also depict her love of social commentary. Vienneau describes her wire sculpture technique as “drawing in space”.
Judy Vienneau has a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston, MA. Since working in commercial Graphic Design and Advertising, Vienneau spent the last twenty+ years studying traditional sculptural techniques, and producing wire and mixed media sculpture. She has exhibited in galleries and juried exhibitions throughout Florida and the Northeast. Her artwork is part of private and public collections nationally.
