  • Description

    Janelle Iglesias (b. 1980, Queens, NYC) lives and works in many places but calls NYC home. Invested in the metaphors found in objects/materials and their physical language in space, she uses sculpture to access other ways of knowing and exploring interconnectedness.  Janelle studied Cultural Anthropology at Emory University (2002), earned her MFA in Sculpture at VCU (2006) and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2009). She has created site sensitive projects for The Queens Museum, El Museo del Barrio, Socrates Sculpture Park, Smack Mellon, Sculpture Center and the Headlands Center for the Arts among others. Her work has been supported by The Joan Mitchell Foundation, The New York Foundation for the Arts and The Jerome Foundation– through which she traveled to the rainforests of West Papua in search of the displays of birds of paradise and the constructions of Bowerbirds. She’s indefinitely digesting this.  
    In addition to her individual practice, Janelle maintains ongoing collaborations with her sister and UF Assistant Professor Lisa Iglesias as Las Hermanas Iglesias and Lisa & Janelle Iglesias.
