Wendy Leigh Curtis was born a Georgia Peach in the city of Atlanta of which she remembers little, save for the taste of boiled peanuts and sweet tea. Family winds blew her from Florida to Ohio, where she decided at a young age she wanted to be an artist. She has spent the the last 17 years in New York City as a Jane of all trades, working to balance art, community, learning, and teaching.
Littering my studio space with dried flowers, fruits, found objects, and gifts I seek to investigate how things fall or change from a seemingly fixed state into something else altogether. I am interested in the relation between all stages of life passing, which is not the same as life ending. I have always gravitated towards figurative elements, which is reflected in these works both in scale and modeling. Although some of these works are a personal meditation for me, I hope that they, along with the more politically/socially-involved work, create a space for interaction with the viewer.
