NYC-based artist, Jaynie Crimmins, illuminates the power of creative transformation, ingenuity and ecological responsibility in her practice through the physical acts of deconstructing and repurposing quotidian materials – repurposing paper materials that are difficult to recycle.
“Essential to my work, is the use of repeating patterns which are either floral or architectural in nature. A pattern’s individual elements can reveal the presence of the infinite in the intimate. With a focus on intricate and detailed handiwork, the process of creation uses limited means for production – evoking the eternal and infinite through painstaking and repetitive work. The art is seeking to contain, yet becomes expansive.”
Crimmins holds a BS from the State University College at Buffalo and MS from the College of New Rochelle, with a minor in Art Therapy. Her work has been shown at ART on PAPER NYC; and has exhibited at the Sharjah Museum of Art in the United Arab Emirates; SPRING/BREAK Art Show, NYC; Governor’s Island Art Fair, NYC; the National Museum of Romanian Literature in addition to museums throughout the United States including the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary, VA among others.
